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.
