MSXML (Microsoft XML Core Services) version 4.0 is a free, feature-rich server component for all types of XML processing, including XML, XSLT, and Schemas. It has comprehensive support for W3C and other major specifications, as well as many proprietary enhancements. This makes MSXML 4.0 a useful and robust tool that can be used as the processing engine behind a wide range of XML-based applications.

This book is arranged in three parts. The first is a reference to the support for XML standards and proprietary extensions within MSXML. The next section shows how to achieve typical application functionality, using the supported technologies in a practical context. The last section contains several case studies that demonstrate bringing together the individual tasks into complete applications.

What this book covers?

DOM and SAX2 support in MSXML
XPath and XSLT (W3C specifications and earlier implementations) for transformations on the server and client
Schemas (XSD and XDR) for validation on the server and client
Styling XML with CSS, VML, and behaviors in IE
Implementing linking and pointing for web applications
Transmitting, handling, and manipulating data on the server and client
Optimizing system architecture for improved performance
Performance, scalability, and security techniques
Case studies showing MSXML in real world applications

This book is for developers who are already familiar with XML. It will teach you how to make the most of MSXML's comprehensive feature-set to create powerful applications. If you are responsible for developing professional XML-based solutions on a Windows platform, this book is for you.
