Whether you’re just starting out with XSLT and XPath, or you’re moving up to the 2.0 standards, Beginning XSLT 2.0 covers everything you need to know to solve virtually any transformation problem.
Jeni Tennison, an invited expert on the W3C’s XSL working group, knows the standards backward and forward. As befits a book subtitled From Novice to Professional, though, she begins with the absolute basics -- assuming you know some HTML and CSS, but little more.
Using plenty of sample code and output, she walks through all facets of XSLT 2.0: templates, conditional processing, manipulating atomic values, variables, paths, sequences, result trees, sorting, grouping, and more. You’ll find practical guidance on constructing applications; handling backwards compatibility; using dynamic transformations; even interpreting RSS with XSLT. Handy quick-reference appendices make the book a true “single source” for any developer. Bill Camarda, from the October 2005 Read Only
