Re: Question about Michael Kay's book
Mike, Thanks for what seems an honest appraisal and to every who replied. > The MSXML appendix is the longest I fiddled with MSXML some time ago and found it to be inconsistent with the spec while output using Xalan/Xerces from servlets to be no problem. > Cocoon is covered only superficially. I was afraid of that. > the index leaves something to be desired. I hear (on here) a lot of references to Mike's book, and was hoping it might be a better (faster/more explanatory/more cohesive) resource then the W3C site. > ...but also because running XSLT in the client opens up a lot of > possibilities that aren't there with the other products. Since I don't build specifically for MS and can't get consistent HTML frame/table/css handling from any two user-agents I pretty much ignore such possibilities. Maybe one day MS will quit extending the standards, Netscape will figure out how to implement them correctly, and the others will complete their implementations and I'll save a lot of time and effort... but, I'm not holding my breath. :-) Again, thanks Mike & everyone.
