Overview

The combination of Extensible Markup Language (XML) and its related interlinking standards bring a range of exciting possibilities to the realm of Internet content management. This practical reference book documents these critical standards, shifting theory into practice for today's developers who are creating tomorrow's useful, efficient, and information-rich applications and Web sites.

Blending advanced reference material with practical guidelines, this authoritative guide presents a historical overview, current developments, and future perspectives in three detailed sections. Part I provides a conceptual framework, highlighting current and emerging linking technologies, hypermedia concepts, and the rationale behind the "Open" Web of tomorrow. Part II details the specifics behind the emerging core standards, and then Part III examines how these technologies can be applied and how the concepts covered can be put to efficient use within the world of Web site management and Web publishing.

Topics covered in-depth include:

  • Hypermedia concepts and alternatives for the Web
  • XML Namespaces, XML Base, XInclude, XML Infoset, XHTML, and XSLT
  • XPath, XLink, and XPointer concepts, strengths, and limitations
  • Tools, applications, and environments that are emerging
  • Migration strategies, from conventional models to more sophisticated linking techniques
  • Future perspectives on the XPath, XLink, and XPointer standards

Both detailed and authoritative, this book contains the most thorough documentation of XML's linking standards currently available, and it examines how today's enabling technologies are likely to change the Web of tomorrow.
