books include The Java Developer's Resource, Java Network Programming, Java Unlike most other XML books on the market, the XML Bible covers XML not from HTML, despite PDF's much larger collection of graphics primitives.

May 7, Although XML (Extensible Markup Language) is outdated for a long time compared with JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), in some areas.

You'll even learn how you can write XML documents in languages other than English, even languages that are nothing like English, such as Chinese, Hebrew, and Russian.

Comparison of e-book formats

A DTD specifies which elements are and are not allowed in an XML document, and the exact context and structure of those elements. A validating parser can read a document, compare it to its DTD, and report any mistakes it finds.

DTDs enable document authors to ensure that their work meets any necessary criteria. You'll learn the syntax for declaring elements, attributes, entities, and notations.

You'll learn how to use entity declarations and entity references to build both a document and its DTD from multiple, independent pieces. This enables you to make long, hard-to-follow documents much simpler by separating them into related modules and components.

And you'll learn how to use namespaces to mix together different XML vocabularies in one document. XML markup specifies only what's in a document.

Unlike HTML, it does not say anything about what that content should look like. Information about an XML document's appearance when printed, viewed in a Web browser, or otherwise displayed is stored in a style sheet. Different style sheets can be used for the same document. You might, for instance, want to use one style sheet that specifies small fonts for printing, another one with larger fonts for on-screen presentation, and a third with absolutely humongous fonts to project the document on a wall at a seminar.

You can change the appearance of an XML document by choosing a different style sheet without touching the document itself. It applies fixed style rules to the contents of particular elements. CSS Level 2 is a more recent standard that adds support for aural style sheets, user interface styles, international and bidirectional text, and more.

XSL, by contrast, is a more complicated and more powerful style language that can apply styles to the contents of elements as well as rearrange elements, add boilerplate text, and transform documents in almost arbitrary ways.

XSL is divided into two parts: a transformation language for converting XML trees to alternative trees, and a formatting language for specifying the appearance of the elements of an XML tree. Currently, many more tools support the transformation language than the formatting language. XPointers introduce a new syntax you can attach to the end of URLs to link not only to particular documents but also to particular parts of particular documents.

Metadata is information about a document, such as the author, date, and title of a work, rather than the work itself.

You'll experience a variety of XML applications in many domains, ranging from push to vector graphics to genealogy. And you'll learn how to take advantage of XML for your own unique projects, programs, and Web sites.

In fact, I wrote more pages than the printer could glue between two covers, so this edition is also my first English language hard back. Why so big? Because I needed to fit in everything that was in the second edition plus oodles of new and updated material including:.

The plan is to keep selling both the second and gold editions simultaneously which raises the obvious question of which you should download. If you're strapped for cash or bookshelf space, you should probably choose the second edition. On the upside, the Gold edition is a little more up-to-date.

If you have a particular interest in any of the new topics listed above or schemas, I'd suggest getting the Gold edition.

Otherwise the second edition will probably serve you well without inducing a hernia. For this edition, I focused on adding new material, not on rewriting and updating what had already been written.

If you already own the second edition, it's probably not worth upgrading unless you have a particular need for one of the new chapters. It's only been about 5 months since the second edition came out, and pretty much everything in that edition is still current.

On the other hand, if you're still using the first edition, it might be time to upgrade.

The first edition is now over two years old, and there've been a lot of developments in the XML world since I'm sorry but there's no special upgrade price.

Unlike software, the incremental cost of printing extra copies of a book is a non-trivial. However, if you did like the first edition, I think you'll like the Gold edition even more. It doesn't spend a lot of pages talking about BNF grammars or parsing element trees.

Instead it shows you how you can use XML and existing tools today to more efficiently and productively produce attractive, exciting, easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain Web sites that will keep your readers coming back for more.

This book is aimed squarely at Web site developers.

You'll be amazed to discover that in conjunction with style sheets and a few free tools, XML lets you do things that previously required either custom software costing hundreds to thousands of dollars per developer or extensive knowledge of programming languages like Perl. None of the software in this book will cost you more than a few minutes of download time. None of the tricks require any programming. To that end, I will assume you know how to ftp files, send email, and load URLs in your Web browser of choice.

I will also assume you have a reasonable knowledge of HTML at about the level supported by Netscape 1. You should be able to place that page on a Web server. On the other hand, there are a number of things I do not assume you know.

In particular:. Unlike many other books on XML, this one does not assume you area programmer, whether of Java, Perl, C, or some other language.

XML is a markup language, not a programming language. You don't need to be a programmer to write XML documents.

As you learn a little you can do a little. As you learn a little more, you can do a little more. Things you'll learn include:. In the final section of this book, you'll see several practical examples of XML being used for real-world applications, including:. It shows you how the different pieces of the XML equation fit together to create and deliver documents to readers.

Then you'll learn by example how to write XML documents with tags that you define that make sense for your document. You'll learn how to edit them in a text editor, attach style sheets to them, and load them into a Web browser such as Internet Explorer 5. You'll even learn how you can write XML documents in languages other than English, even languages that are nothing like English, such as Chinese, Hebrew, and Russian.

A DTD specifies which elements are and are not allowed in an XML document, and the exact context and structure of those elements. A validating parser can read a document, compare it to its DTD, and report any mistakes it finds.

DTDs enable document authors to ensure that their work meets any necessary criteria. You'll learn the syntax for declaring elements, attributes, entities, and notations. You'll learn how to use entity declarations and entity references to build both a document and its DTD from multiple, independent pieces. This enables you to make long, hard-to-follow documents much simpler by separating them into related modules and components.

And you'll learn how to use namespaces to mix together different XML vocabularies in one document. Part III, consisting of Chapters 14 through 19, teaches you everything you need to know about style sheets.The plan is to keep selling both the second and gold editions simultaneously which raises the obvious question of which you should download.

XSL, by contrast, is a more complicated and more powerful style language that can apply styles to the contents of elements as well as rearrange elements, add boilerplate text, and transform documents in almost arbitrary ways.

Finally, you will find an assortment of useful software for working with XML documents. You don't need to be a programmer to write XML documents.
