Professional XSL takes an applied, tutorial-style approach to teaching the core fundamentals of the XSLT, XPath and XSL-FO specifications. You'll learn how to create well structured and modularized stylesheets to generate your required output, how to change, filter, and sort data, and how to incorporate other content for presentation purposes.
XML is now the established standard for platform-neutral data storage and exchange, separating content from presentation. Its popularity is due to the flexibility of the language and the ability to reuse the data in a variety of ways. XSL is a key technology for working with XML, and is comprised of two parts: XSLT is the official language for transforming XML from one format to another, whether for restructuring/selectively processing the data or presenting the data for display; XSL-FO is a proposed vocabulary for incorporating information concerning how the document should be arranged for presentation. A related standard, XPath, is the language for addressing specific parts of an XML document.

Jonathan Pinnock started programming in Pal III assembler on his school's PDP 8/e, with a massive 4K of memory, back in the days before Moore's Law reached the statute books. These days he spends most of his time developing and extending the increasingly successful PlatformOne product set that his company, JPA, markets to the financial services community. He seems to spend the rest of his time writing for Wrox, although he occasionally surfaces to say hello to his long-suffering wife and two children.
Paul Spencer, after three years of freelance XML Consultancy, decided at the end of 2000 that he had had enough of working 7 day weeks and founded alphaXML Ltd, of which he is CTO. Based in Henley-on-Thames in the UK, he leads an expanding team providing XML services throughout the world. Paul is XML adviser to the UK Inland Revenue, the Government Gateway and Office of the e-Envoy, so the workload never really dropped.

Previously, Jeff spent about six years working as a senior software engineer, technical lead, and consultant at companies Sprint, Informix, Cerner, and Perceptive Vision, Inc. He helped design and develop many enterprise systems, including clinical information system, document imaging product, web-based computer telephony application, Internet media application, and enterprise order management system.

Andrew Watt is an Independent Consultant who enjoys few things more than exploring the technologies others have yet to sample. Since he wrote his first programs in 6502 Assembler and BBC Basic in the mid 1980's he has sampled Pascal, Prolog and C++ among others. More recently he has focused on the power of Web-relevant technologies including Lotus Domino, Java and HTML. His current interest is in the various applications of the Extensible Markup Meta Language, XMML, sometimes imprecisely and misleadingly called XML. The present glimpse he has of the future of SVG, XSL-FO, XSLT, CSS, XLink, XPointer etc when they actually work properly together is an exciting, if daunting, prospect. He has just begun to dabble with XQuery. Such serial dabbling, so he is told, is called "life-long learning".
