xml elements of style
I'd happy to report that my latest book, _XML Elements of Style_, is now

XML Elements of Style is aimed at developers who already have at least a
basic understanding of XML (maybe from _XML: A Primer_).  It covers the XML
1.0 and Namespaces in XML Recommendations in detail - everything from
elements and attributes to unparsed entities and notations.
Interoperability issues get special highlighting, including details on the
interactions between Namespaces and XML and the behavior(s) of
non-validating parsers.

I hope this book provides readers with a solid reference to the core XML
standards, describing best practices while explaining a lot of obscure
details.  It contains 35 mostly brief chapters explaining particular
aspects of XML and XML document structure development.

Despite the title, this book does not cover CSS or XSL in depth - it covers
'style' used in a more general sense, as best practices.  Developers
looking for a guide to programming style in SAX or the DOM would probably
be better served by other books as well.

A lot more information (including the introduction to the book, which was
mysteriously left off) is available at:

I hope folks like this book - XML-Dev, in many ways, made it possible.
