About the Author

Andrew Watt is an independent consultant who enjoys few things more than exploring the technologies others have yet to sample. Since he wrote his first programs in 6502 Assembler and BBC Basic in the mid 1980's he has sampled Pascal, Prolog and C++ among others. More recently he has focussed on the power of Web-relevant technologies including Lotus Domino, Java and HTML. His current interest is in the various applications of the Extensible Markup Meta Language, XMML, sometimes imprecisely and misleadingly called XML. The present glimpse he has of the future of SVG, XSL-FO, XSLT, CSS, XLink, XPointer etc when they actually work properly together is an exciting, if daunting, prospect. He has just begun to dabble with XQuery. Such serial dabbling, so he is told, is called "life-long learning".

Oli Gauti Gudmunsson works for SALT, acting as one of the two Chief System Architects of the SALT systems, and as Development Director in New York. He is currently working on incorporating XML and XSL into SALT's web authoring and content management systems. He has also acted as an instructor in the Computer Science I Java course at the University of Iceland. As a 'hobby he is finishing his BS degree in Computer Engineering.

Jonathan Pinnock started programming in Pal III assembler on his school's PDP 8/e, with a massive 4K of memory, back in the days before Moore's Law reached the statute books. These days he spends most of his time developing and extending the increasingly successful PlatformOne product set that his company, JPA, markets to the financial services community. He seems to spend the rest of his time writing for Wrox, although he occasionally surfaces to say hello to his long-suffering wife and two children

Zoran Zaev is a Sr. Web Solutions Architect with Hitachi Innovative Solutions, Corp. in the Washington DC area. He has worked in technology since the time when 1 MHz CPUs and 48Kb was considered a 'significant power', in the now distant 1980s. In mid 1990s, Zoran became involved in web applications development. Since then, he has worked helping large and small clients alike to leverage the power of web applications. His more recent emphasis has been web applications and web services with XML, SOAP, and other related technologies.
