ANN: XML: A Primer, 3rd Edition, and thanks
I'm happy to announce that XML: A Primer has reached a third edition. This edition has been substantially reorganized, breaking down different aspects of XML into smaller parts. It also includes (brief) coverage of W3C XML Schema and RELAX. While I don't think most of the readers of this list are in need of a primer any more, but I'd like to thank everyone for the discussions here which have enriched XML: A Primer substantially. The book has changed, and needed to change. From the preface: "XML has changed dramatically since I began writing the first edition of this primer three years ago. At that time, it seemed possible to describe all of the possibilities of XML 1.0 and its related specifications in one slim volume, providing a concise but comprehensive introduction. The first edition had many times as many pages as the XML specifications of the day, and while the specifications could be difficult reading, the structures they described weren't especially complex. Now the specifications vastly outweigh this book, but more and more developers need an introduction to the technology." More information is at http://simonstl.com/xmlprim/ I'll have the code for the book up in the next couple of days, as I needed a printed copy to find out page numbers. Funny how that's still the case! Simon St.Laurent XML: A Primer, 3rd Ed. / XML Elements of Style XHTML: Migrating Toward XML http://www.simonstl.com - XML essays and books
