The Visual QuickStart Guide series from Peachpit Press is known for boiling topics down to the essentials, and presenting them in an engaging and efficient way, to get the reader up to speed quickly. In applying this model to XML, author Elizabeth Castro had her work cut out for her.
Fortunately for her readers, Castro has identified successfully the core components of XML, and presented them in a streamlined way. This book doesn't tackle any of the advanced elements of XML technology, such as SOAP, SAX, or integration with the Document Object Model (DOM). Instead, it focuses on teaching the basic nuts and bolts of creating XML documents, styling them, and defining their structure.
This book moves at a fast pace. Document Type Definitions (DTDs), for instance, get only 30 pages of coverage. This tight format comprises simple examples that illustrate commands and concepts, instead of pages of text. The pages are presented in a two-column format, so that code fragments can be placed (wisely) side by side with the step-by-step explanatory text. Each topic example is supplemented with one or more useful implementation tips.
For a true grasp of XML and all of its potential, you'll need to follow up this introductory tutorial with more reading on the applications of the technology and case studies. But this little book is a great way to learn the basics of XML in a weekend. --Stephen W. Plain
- XML documents
- Document Type Definitions (DTDs)
- XSLT and XPath
- Cascading style sheets (CSS)
XML (Extensible Markup Language) is revolutionizing the way people work with the Web. In XML, markup tags are readable by humans and machines, making XML a well-supported way to create, distribute, and present information. Hundreds of thousands of readers learned HTML from Elizabeth Castro with HTML 4 For the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide. Now, using concise instructions and plenty of screen shots, Elizabeth Castro teaches beginning users all they need to know to write XML codes, XSL, and Cascading Style Sheets, as well as providing the scripts required to generate each piece. For anyone wanting to learn XML and use it to generate dynamic Web sites, Castro's book is an excellent and affordable resource.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Unfortunately, you will not receive any answers to this important question with Castro's book. She explains the <u>details</u> of XML very well but provides no real world examples of what XML is actually good for. This is like explaining the HTML tags in detail, but never really explaining what the purpose of HTML is. It would be better to start off by explaining that HTML is used to layout web pages for the world wide web and show us a few examples.
Also, the tiny, tiny font used to accompany the code snippet figures is hard to read without a magnifying glass (and it's in Italics too!). A bold face, font size +1 would have been much easier on the eyes. So be sure to have your reading glasses handy.
In the meantime, I will continue to search for a book, ANY book, which can explain to me just what XML is good for! It must be good for something, as I recognize the power of being able to define your own HTML or markup tags via XML. But this book, like some others I've read, fails to explain the "why" or "how" of it. I'll keep it as a nuts & bolts reference for later -- after I've learned why this technology was invented to begin with.
Castro's book can best be summed up with a her own understatement of words from p. 15. "Unfortunately, the reality of using XML is still not quite up to the vision."
While the steps are succinct, you do need other resources to learn XML. I was very frustrated with the book.
