    If you're a developer -- and especially if you're comfortable with Microsoft technologies -- you'll find Kurt Cagle's XML guide absolutely outstanding. Cagle delivers what many XML books don't: perspective. He covers virtually every aspect of XML development, from working with the XML Document Object Model to extracting information with XSL and XPath; XML Transform, Microsoft's excellent new XSXML 2.6 parser, XML schemas, using XML with the IE5 browser, server-side XML with ASP, XML and Microsoft databases, even BizTalk. This book oozes intelligence. A big winner.

    This is an excellent book for people knowing the internet technologies such as HTML, XML, SOAP, Databinding and just willing to go a little bit deeper. However, there are a lot of typos in the book, specially in the demo code, some people might be frustrated. Beginners stay away.
