Looking for a book recommendation
Yes, I've read the archives. ;-} Everyone seems to recommend Michael Kay's book for XSLT, but this book just doesn't do it for me. It seems to leave a big gaping hole in the "middle". What I mean is that the early chapters give a decent intro to how to get going with XSLT, and the rest of the book is primarily a reference, which I'm sure is great when you know what you're looking for. For me, though, I seem to fall into the hole. I've "got going" with the basics of XSLT, but I don't know enough to know what to look for in the reference. When I need to know how to do something - for example "How do I test for the content of a node matching a specific string literal?" - this book doesn't help me at all. Also, I learned more about XPath from "JSTL in Action" than I did from this book. Does anyone have any recommendations for a book that would fill the gap for me? Something that doesn't necessarily start from scratch, but doesn't assume I know what to look for when I'm trying to solve a specific problem?
