O'Reilly Releases Pocket Reference to XML
SEBASTOPOL, CA--XML, the industrial-strength markup language being
eagerly adopted by the Web development community, promises to be an
essential tool for electronic commerce and information management.
O'Reilly & Associates' latest release in the handy Pocket Reference
series, The XML Pocket
Reference, is both a concise introduction to XML
terminology and syntax, and a quick reference to XML instructions,
attributes, entities, and data types. It also covers XSL (Extensible
Stylesheet Language), necessary to ensure that your XML documents have
a consistent look and feel across platforms.
XML (the Extensible Markup Language) provides a more structured--and
therefore more powerful--medium than HTML, allowing you to define new
document types and style sheets as needed. Although the generic tags of
HTML are sufficient for everyday text, XML gives you a way to add rich,
well-defined markup to electronic documents.
XML itself is complex, but its basic concepts are simple. This small
book acts both as a perfect tutorial for learning the basics of XML,
and as a convenient reference to the XML and XSL specifications.
