"Another outstanding book!!! I read tons of technical books each year, but I have to admit that I truly enjoy my O’Reilly 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 O’Reilly book...In summary, this is a good book for both beginners and advanced XML developers. Keep up the good work O’Reilly!"
