Elliotte Rusty Harold is originally from New Orleans to which he returns periodically in search of a decent bowl of gumbo. However, he currently resides in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn with his wife Beth and dog Thor. He's a frequent speaker at industry conferences including Software Development, Dr. Dobb's Architecture & Design World, SD Best Practices, Extreme Markup Languages, and too many user groups to count. His open source projects include the XOM Library for processing XML with Java and the Amateur media player.
"Another outstanding book!!! I read tons of technical books each year, but I have to admit that I truly enjoy my OReilly books the best...The XML book is always by my side when I am doing web development. Even though I have become fairly knowledgeable regarding XML/XSL, I still find times when I have to consult the OReilly book...In summary, this is a good book for both beginners and advanced XML developers. Keep up the good work OReilly!"
