  • Neil Bradley

Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


Building on the success of the first and second editions of The XML Companion, Neil Bradley has up-dated this accessible, in-depth reference to cover many of the new supporting standards that have emerged since XML was released in 1998. Apart from the core chapters on the XML standard itself, this book concentrates on related standards developed by the W3C and on the two most popular applications of this technology: document publishing and data exchange.  The XML Companion

  • Provides accessible, comprehensive description of each XML feature
  • Does not assume experience of HTML or SGML
  • Detailed study of the standard is supported by the inclusion of cross-referenced ¿roadmaps¿ of the building blocks that comprise the standard.
  • Includes an extensive glossary
  • Related standards for cataloguing, processing, linking and styling XML are covered in detail.
