More About This Title Web Design with XML - Generating Web Pages withXML ,CSS, XSLT & Formatting Objects


A quick and easy introduction to key XML technologies.
Extensible markup language, or XML, consists of tags indicating the content of the data contained on a page. The neutral, platform-independent format of this mark-up language makes it possible to feed different output channels (Web, WAP, Print) from one information source. In this quick and easy introduction to key XML technologies, Web Design with XML adds another dimension to XML, demonstrating how to generate visual output using XML DTDs, Namespaces, CSS, XSL, and XSLT, all illustrated with examples.
* One basic example file is used throughout the book to demonstrate features of CSS XPath XSLT and FO

* Contains easy-to-use techniques requiring no programming know-how
* Can be used as a concise and readable XSLT reference
