This second edition of the bestselling Learning XML provides web developers with a concise but on-the-ground understanding of XML (Extensible Markup Language) and its potential–not just a whirlwind tour of XML. The author explains important and relevant XML technologies and their capabilities. Clearly and concisely with lots of real-life projects and useful examples. He outlines the elements of markup — demystifying concepts like attributes, entities, and namespaces — and provides enough depth and examples to get you started. Learning XML is a reliable source for anyone who needs to know XML but doesn’t want to waste time sifting through hundreds of Web sites or 800 pages of bloated text. For authors preparing XML documents, this book explains the process of creating files and them with the appropriate structure and format.

Learning XML also discusses the stylesheets needed to view documents in next-generation browsers, databases, and other devices. Learning XML illustrates core XML concepts and language syntax, in addition to important related tools such as CSS and XSL styling languages and so on. XLink and XPointer specifications for creating rich link structures. It includes information about three schema languages for validation: W3C Schema, Schematron, and RELAX-NG, which are receiving widespread support from people who need to validate documents but are not satisfied with DTDs.
