O'Reilly Packs 2,829 Pages of Invaluable XML Information on a Single CD: The "XML CD Bookshelf"

Sebastopol, CA--You know that one of O'Reilly's XML books provides a solution to your pressing problem, but you can't remember which one. Or you're working at home or off-site, and you don't want to lug a shelf-full of books with you. Or maybe you don't yet have the complete O'Reilly library of XML books, and you don't have the shelf space to spare. No worries. The XML CD Bookshelf (US $119.95) provides convenient online access to a library of O'Reilly's XML books--all from a CD-ROM drive. Seven of O'Reilly's best-selling XML books are included on this CD-ROM (2,829 pages of O'Reilly references and tutorials), fully searchable and cross-referenced, so programmers can search either the individual index for each book or the master index for the entire collection.

Included are the complete, unabridged versions of these titles:

The CD has a master index for all seven books and a powerful search engine--and all the text is extensively hyper-linked--so you can find what you're looking for quickly. Packaged with the hard copy of "XML in a Nutshell, Second Edition," it takes up less than 2 inches of bookshelf space. The seven books included on the CD--if purchased separately--would retail for $269.65 (US), but the "XML CD Bookshelf" retails for only $119.95.

They say good things come in small packages. The "XML CD Bookshelf" packs a stack of essential XML books into one comprehensive, immensely convenient, and portable small package.
