That's a very difficult balance to reach. I'm currently working on a book 
on the techniques used in Modularization of XHTML. To learn it *properly* 
you really do need a strong background in the fundamental concepts of XML. 
However, to not lose the reader audience, examples and demonstration that 
this knowledge is something worth having (beyond it's academic value) is 
paramount.

I write to how I want to learn -- which includes most of the "whys" then 
following up with the "hows". So far it's been a successful format for me, 
but not all authors and publishers agree with the approach.
