Professional ASP XML

Professional ASP XML written by Bill Kropog, Steven Hahn, Mark Baartse, et al/p>

Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP pages) and the Extensible Markup Language (XML) are two of the hottest Web technologies; but each, because it is a complex topic in its own right, usually is documented individually. "Professional ASP XML" ties the two together in an important way, and illustrates how to utilize them both to produce next-generation Web applications.

Data on the Web : From Relations to Semistructured Data and Xml

Data on the Web : From Relations to Semistructured Data and Xml, written by Serge Abiteboul, Peter Buneman, Dan Suciu, Jim Gray

Aimed at readers already familiar with database concepts, the book includes little introductory material. It quickly lays out the concepts of self-describing semi-structured data and how XML fits into this approach to data representation. The discussion deals with XML as a data transfer mechanism and not a presentation language. While there is a quick explanation of DTDs, Xlink, and XPointer, readers should be fairly familiar with XML before approaching this advanced title.

XML Pocket Reference

XML Pocket Reference, written by Robert Eckstein

At the front of the book, a crash course in XML quickly spells out the important terminology, along with extremely short examples of XML, Document Type Definition (DTD), and Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) documents. The book also includes a nice bulleted list of cautions and rules to follow if you want to create valid XML documents. A tip section entitled, "Unlearning Bad Habits" offers handy warnings that are especially useful for those of us who occasionally slip into sloppy HTML coding behaviors that XML won't tolerate.
The remainder of the title comprises reference sections devoted to XML, DTDs, XSL, XLink, and XPointer. These sections offer a balanced mix of both straight syntax references and brief general explanations of key topics. Short examples are in abundance to illustrate usage with accompanying explanatory text. The authors are very up-front about the changing nature of the XSL, XLink, and XPointer and point out that even their freshly published material on these subjects may soon be out of date.

XML Applications

XML Applications, written by Frank Boumphrey, Olivia di Renzo, Jon Duckett, Joe Graf, Paul Houle, Trevor Jenkins, Peter Jones, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, Kathie Kingsley-Hughes, Craig McQueen, Stephen Mohr

Mastering XML is certainly difficult, but XML Applications provides all the background you'll need to get started. Early sections outline why XML is a better way to deliver Internet content. The authors look at available XML tools (including freeware utilities and the Internet Explorer 5 beta) and XML basics, such as Document Type Definitions (DSDs), cascading style sheets (CSS), and Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL). The authors also present real-world implementations of XML, including Microsoft's Channel Definition Format and the Chemical Markup Language (for chemists).
The book moves on to the nitty-gritty of building XML documents, including design considerations, conventions, and using custom tags. Information on XML and databases follows, and then the authors highlight important XML topics, such as namespaces, XLinks and XPointers (for linking content), and the XML document object model.

XML IE5 Programmers Reference

XML IE5 Programmer's Reference, written by Alex Homer

Author Alex Homer gives clear examples of the use of XML and covers what features IE 5 supports. This introduction is followed by a chapter that defines the XML document structure and shows how all of the various components, such as DTDs (Document Type Definitions), XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language), XPL (Extensible Pointer Language), and XLL (Extensible Linking Language) all fit together.
Next the author presents the details of how DTDs and XML schemas can be used to frame the data your XML documents will work with. He also provides good coverage of the Xlink and Xpointer languages for connecting XML documents and the information they access. The book explains the XML Document Object Model (DOM) with plenty of short code snippets to illustrate syntax. Appendices offer reference to the IE 5 DOM, XML constructs, and cascading style sheet properties. This title is great for learning XML, but it will serve you just as well down the road as a handy reference.

XML Bible

XML Bible written by Elliotte Rusty Harold
