9780130404466: XSLT and XPATH: A Guide to XML Transformations

Using XSLT and XPath, developers can take full advantage of virtually any XML data in both Web applications and printed documents. Guide to XML Transformations: XSLT & XPath delivers a thorough understanding of the concepts and inner workings of Xpath and the XSLT processing model. Leading XSL experts Zarella Rendon and John Robert Gardner teach XSLT and XPath through extensive example code, explained line by line. Guide to XML Transformations assumes basic HTML and/or skills, but no familiarity with programming concepts. Readers can utilize its hands-on exercises to quickly begin performing substantive transformations of XML to HTML and, soon after, to virtually any other format.
