Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0735605629, Paperback)

Currently, XML is a bubbling cauldron of expectations and implementations. In XML in Action, William J. Pardi gives you a feel for what Microsoft is throwing into the mix by providing a general introduction to XML, with a focus on Internet Explorer 5.0's implementation in particular.

Not surprisingly, the book opens up with a discussion of markup languages, the need for an extensible solution such as XML, and a taste for some of the associated languages currently critical to XML. The text then moves into the structure of XML documents, presenting the many XML terms and explaining how Document Type Definition (DTD) enforces the rules that govern XML implementations.

The book illustrates how to script XML and how to use it to build data structures--a major advantage of XML and an important skill for Web developers. The author also discusses the Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL), a special formatting dialect for use with XML, and the special linking capabilities of XML, focusing on Xlink and Xpointer. Pardi illustrates several other advanced aspects of XML and documents the XML Object Model. A companion CD includes e-text of the book, content, and code samples and links to XML resources online. While this title is written through the eyes of Microsoft, it provides an excellent introduction to the possibilities and realities of XML. --Stephen W. Plain
