I'VE BEEN RAGGING MY BRAIN OUT TRYING TO FIGURE SOMETHING ABOUT XML FROM THIS BOOK...and I TELL U, IT AIN'T HELPING!!!!! And i thought it would be straight forward and less barbling like other books *sigh* I'm going to invest my money in another XML book that hopefully would make me learn this language...I so want to learn it! I think I'm getting more out of XML website tutorials...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Someone Should Read 'Mastering Editing'
I am extremely disappointed and frustrated with this book. I have never read a computer publication that was so riddled with typographical, grammatical, and syntactical errors. I would be surprised if the editor and/or proofreaders actually sat down, read, and attempted to digest this material. The book is quite thorough in its discussion of the various XML technologies, but I found that the presentation was lacking and the bug-ridden code examples left me wondering if I had truly understood what I had read. I came away with a fairly well-rounded understanding of XML, but I still would not recommend this book. I gave it one star not so much for the content as for the incredibly poor job of editing. I hope Sybex takes a long, hard look at this book and releases a much needed and improved second edition.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
