  • Best XML Book?

    Hi,

    what is the best complete book to learn XML from scratch (Black Book of XML???).

    Also does the book you recommend explain how to write XHTML and how to apply XML to other languages?

    And finally, at the moment is XML only useful to store address books or does it have a vast number of tags used to specify all kinds of content?

    thank you,

    For XHTML I have / use 'Mastering XHTML'. IMHO it's very comprehensive and a good choice for XHTML books. 1,019+ pages from cover to cover Worth a look .

      XML does not specify itself any tags at all.

      XML lets you specify your own tags.

      And XML is useful for a bunch of stuff. Then XML Applications are also useful, such as SVG, MathML, XSLT, XSLFO, XML Schema, etc.

      I highly recommend XML in a Nutshell by O'Reilly. Covers pretty much everything to get you started, and then some.

        there must be thousands of books, go to a book shop and read and find one which suits you, your language.

          You'll probably want to use XSLT to transform your XML in which case I would recommend Michael Kay's book 'XSLT' published by Wrox Press.

          Lots of info on XSLT also available at www.xslt.com

            The 5th edition of Beginning XML looks promising as well. Will be released in July 2012

              though XHTML for websites is pretty much dead.
