Anyone know of any "in the pipeline"? Amazon lists Priscilla Walmsley's 2007 book on XQuery. I see also a book not yet available, by Ioana Manolescu and Yannis Papakonstantinou. The XQuery specification itself is one of W3C's more readable specs (along with XSLT). The update specification isn't yet a Recommendation, and neither is the xpath 2 full text specification, but XQuery is useful without waiting :-) and for that matter I don't know if we'll see XSLT 2 processors with full-text support. Also, take a look at the XQuery use cases for some examples. It's linked from www.w3.org/TR/ and also from http://www.w3.org/Query/ Liam -- Liam Quin, W3C XML Activity Lead, http://www.w3.org/People/Quin/ http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/ * http://www.fromoldbooks.org/
