CodeNotes for XML does a masterful job of capturing the essence of XML for programmers who want to get results in a hurry. Like all the books in this new series, it combines the insight you'd expect from an exceptionally well-versed classroom instructor, with the specific code examples you'll need to rapidly perform key tasks.
Whether you're looking for a tool, technique, or answer, you're surprisingly likely to find it in this small book. What's a namespace, and how do you declare and use them? Why bother with schemas instead of DTDs? When should you use XSLT instead of CSS? How do you overcome XSLT's inability to sort by date, or evade inconsistencies amongst XML parsers?
After neatly nailing the differences between SAX and DOM, CodeNotes for XML offers practical guidance on using each of them -- including sample applications for each, in both Java and Visual Basic.
