Sams Teach Yourself XML in 21 Days, 3E is engineered to be the answer for learning XML. Existing books are frequently criticized for lacking up-to-date examples or depth, but expert author Steve Holzner offers hundreds of real-world examples demonstrating the uses of XML and the newest tools developers need to make the most of it. The book starts with basic syntax, moving to formatting with CSS or the Extensible Stylesheet Language and working with XHTML and other tools for presenting XML data on the Web or in multimedia applications. The final sections of the book discuss XForms and applying XML to programming with Java, .NET, or JavaScript and then to building XML into database or Web Services applications with SOAP. Along the way, Steve shows readers the results of every lesson and provides both the "how" and "why" of the inner working of XML technologies.
