Re: About Michael Kay's XSLT book
Pretty simple formula. (Your Increased Hourly Bill Rate * Hours between now and when (better said "if") a new title is released) - (Price of MK XSLT 2.0 Book + Price of MK XPath 2.0 Book) = Enough to justify buying it a second time round if the need such arises. I stood in line for 18 hours (<-lie) and got the very first title every printed (<--bigger lie) and have been a much better human being ever since (ummmm.... is smarter the same as better? If yes <-- truth, no <-- half truth) On Wed, 16 Mar 2005 21:11:40 +0530, Midsummer Sun <midsummer.sun@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > This question is for Michael Kay ! > > I already have Michael Kay's book "XSLT 1.0 2nd Edition, Programmer's > Reference".
