Thank you very much Charles for the references.
Still, I want to know if there are tools/books for the specific
libraries of IE6.
I know that some libraries sometimes gives a different interface and
properties than others, or extra features in addition to the standard.
Are there any changes or extras for MSXML, JavaScript, or any other
library given by IE6?
If so, is there any good documentation and tool for IE6 libraries?

Thanks again,
-- Amir

First you need a good programmer's editor. I suggest the shareware
product UltraEdit (www.ultraedit.com). It has the usual things
programmer's editors have (color-coded syntax highlighting,
auto-complete, a variety of project management tools, macros, templates,
etc.). One thing I particularly like is the button on the toolbar that
lets you view the file you are editing in your default browser. I use
that for debugging JavaScript and checking the appearance of my HTML.

A good book on JavaScript is indispensable. I suggest the "JavaScript
Bible", ISBN 0764533428. For really good JavaScript implementations, you
will want to use an object-oriented programming approach. The late,
lamented imprint, WROX had an OO JavaScript book
entitled JavaScript Objects, ISBN 1861001894. You can find it
second-hand on the web

You can also use UltraEdit to debug XSLT transformations, but for really
tricky problems, you may want to get a copy of XSLerator from Marrowsoft

Depending on how much XSLT you already know, there are a number of books
I could recommend. The XSLT Programmer's Reference, 2nd Edition, by
Michael Kay is a good reference book. I found that I couldn't understand
the tutorial parts until I had first got some experience. I have bought
and thrown away more XML books than I care to remember, but the quality
seems to be getting better. Jenni Tenison's books are good. Inside XSLT
from New Riders by Steven Holzner is good (ISBN 0735711364).

I intend to write a web application for IE6.
The application is based on XML/XSLT (XSLT runs on client side - IE6)
and the transformation output is XHTML/JavaScript pages.
Could somebody recommend me on tools and books appropriate for this
specific configuration?
And specifically, I'm looking for a good tool for developing/debugging
of (X)HTML/JavaScript, and also XSLT if possible.
Thanks in advance,
-- Amir
