    Misleading title for tech-heavy content

    While this book is a thorough collection of XML and related data, I do not recommend this book. The title is very misleading as I found the content to be anything but 'plain'. The authors seem to have merely reformatted the XML specifications without adding any real insights or useful examples. It is only 'plain English' if you are fluent in EBNF. The book is poorly organized, uses inconsistent and obscure presentation of syntax, has poor examples or no examples at all for most everything. The alphabetic organization is not helpful in that it mixes elements, properties and functions. No doubt there is a lot of information here but it should have been orgainzed and presented in plain English instead of plain tech-speak.
