Every serious XML developer will find it helpful to own a copy of the official, final XML standard - but this book goes much further, annotating the standards with inside information and practical guidance that bring them to life. With the guidance of internationally-known XML expert Bob DuCharme, you'll learn how to use the standards documents to design publishing systems and Web applications more effectively - and understand arcane terms like "syntax trees" and "big-endian." DuCharme offers a practical introduction to XML and the companion specifications XLL and XSL; helps developers understand why the standards' authors made the decisions they made, and what those decisions mean to developers. It provides many figures and diagrams that help clarify relationships among data structures in XML; helps developers find the information they need in each standards document; and more. This is the first XML book to fully reflect the final W3C standard, so it will serve as a key developer's reference for many years to come.

"The official W3C XML spec-by design-is a concise and formal document. Bob DuCharme has annotated the full text of that spec with explanations, insights and over 170 new usage examples. The result is a marvelous reference for XML users and implementors." — Charles F. Goldfarb

In this book, XML insider Robert DuCharme presents the entire official spec-and all the help and interpretation you need to make the most of it. XML: The Annotated Specification delivers: Extensive annotations to every paragraph of the XML specification: documents, logical structures, physical structures, conformance, notation and more. Over 170 new real-world examples that illuminate every nook and cranny of the spec's subtle details. A comprehensive glossary of relevant XML and computer science terms. All the background information you need to understand XML's goals and ongoing evolution. New cross-reference tables for easy navigation of the annotated spec.
