Not a bad intro - but 10 quid for a tiny (5 x 3 inch ~ish) overview, that doesn't cover any of the new important things (XPath etc). Buy a book for twice the price, and you'll get ten times the value (a rule I seem to be noticing in general about IT books at the moment - going the cheapy route is not the best option unluckily!!)

Very handy little book for reference, not always up to date, but some very useful examples.

The author warns you about the changing standards! What he didn't say was the apparent inconsistancy between the examples within. This is most frustrating when you're trying to understand namespaces and then he no longer uses it/them.
Even using IE5.x some examples don't work. Perhaps enlightenment of the tools used first would be a better starting point.

NOTE: This is a pocket reference, it is not meant to take anyone from beginner to expert, there are other books for that. This is a very good complementary book - one to sit alongside bigger books on XML as a dip-in reference tool. Very good explanations of XML syntax, especially DTD's and Schemas (not available yet in IE5). Handy reference tool for XML functions and structures.
