'Applied XML Solutions' presents a series of projects rather than a tutorial format. The projects follow a natural progression from simple to complex. Within each chapter, helpful sidebars highlight XML fundamentals necessary to understand the project in progress. This will save readers' time having to look to another source if they forget a key detail. The last project incorporates techniques discussed throughout the book. The author will illustrate alternative solutions wherever appropriate. 'Applied XML' Solutions shows professional developers how to apply XML to a variety of real-world applications, including - XML as a scripting substitute, using RSS to syndicate content to multiple & non-traditional browsers such as WAP-enabled handheld devices, using XSLT to facilitate communication between incompatible systems, separating web content from web code, importing data from various file formats.
