It covers all aspects of XML technology, from DTD, XSL, and X Pointers to manipulating XML with Java and JavaScript. See hundreds of professional programming techniques as well as code for more than 15 real-world XML applications involving e-commerce, database access, Web management, real estate, and healthcare. This book also includes reference material on SMIL, the XML-based language for Web multimedia.

XML Bible, August 1999

XML is revolutionizing Web site development by making difficult tasks easier and many new tasks possible. Based on the latest W3C standards, this tutorial-plus-reference takes you step by step through everything you need to know to put XML to work, from the fundamentals of the XML language to document construction and simple XML-based solutions for specialized markup problems. Numerous examples, specifications, and addresses for relevant Web sites leave no questions unanswered.

Professional XML, January 2000

This book (2.edition of XML Applications, Wrox 1998) describes how the total XML concept will work for programmers. It explains the essential techniques for designing, using, and displaying XML documents. 
The focus is on real-world applications. It presents design techniques, and shows how to interface XML applications with Web applications and database systems. Whether your requirements are oriented toward data exchange or visual styling, this book will cover all the relevant techniques in the XML community.
Each chapter contains a practical example. The examples cover cross platform languages, parsers, and servers, so you get a valuable insight even if they are not all implemented using your favorite platform.
Professional XML is for anyone who wants to use XML to build applications and systems.

XML IE5, Programmers Reference, March 1999

XML is creeping into the vocabulary of every web page author and application programmer. Even if you haven't actually noticed it yet, XML is there and growing in influence. Some corporations have already chosen to build web-based applications that transfer data between client and server in XML format rather than as HTML within a page, or in the form of traditional record sets through Remote Data Services.

Microsoft has undertaken to provide full support for XML and other associated standards in the latest version of Internet Explorer. These standards are set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and cover a whole range of different technologies.

This book is for web developers who want to know more about what XML is, what its potential applications are, and what support is available for XML and its associated technologies right now in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.

Professional XML Design and Implementation, March 1999

XML is a mark up language which allows you to define your own tags, and to define data rather than format it. The overall concepts of XML are quite well understood but there is little information available about issues of developing applications using XML. By considering the decisions to be made at various stages of a project, via the Centaur case study, this book will help readers understand the various aspects of XML and its related technologies. It stresses the benefits of XML in informational systems, where it can be used to separate content from presentation, and in transactional systems, where it can act as a low-cost alternative to EDI protocols. This unique book is for all web developers who are familiar with ASP and HTML and who now want to use XML to develop web applications.

Designing Distributed Applications with XML, ASP and IE5, April 1999

This book is all about creating Cooperative Network Applications. The aim is to promote the re-use of intranet and Internet applications and maintain the viability of applications in the face of change. Using Stephen's 5 Principles of Cooperative Network Application Development, you can create applications that can promote themselves on the network, sharing data and logic with clients of varying levels of sophistication. Using XML to define data exchange in such a way that future applications will also be able to negotiate an exchange format – even in the face of minor programming errors or evolving data definitions. Using LDAP this can take place on a network where we query for the services without knowing their location. The result is a distributed computing environment that will remain robust while users and resources are in flux.
