"...you'll find that XML in a Nutshell thoroughly explains better than its competitors the basic rules that all XML documents and all XML document creators must follow. If you're a serious XML user, you'll find coverage of just about everything you need, including basic syntax, detailed examples, and excellent references...This well-organized handbook delivers precisely what I am looking for in my projects. As its title implies, referencing this book is just like cracking a hard nut to reach its rich contents."
-- Vivek Vaishampayan, Technical Communication

"...this is the definitive guide and reference for developers...Information is easy to find with a detailed table of contents, 34-page index, and a convenient thumb index...An essential reference for web designers, programmers using applications such as REST and SOAP, and developers involved in internationalisation of applications, web pages, and other situations where language encodings are required. A title that should be in any library."
-- Major Keary, PC Update

"Another outstanding book!!! I read tons of technical books each year, but I have to admit that I truly enjoy my O’Reilly books the best...The XML book is always by my side when I am doing web development. Even though I have become fairly knowledgeable regarding XML/XSL, I still find times when I have to consult the O’Reilly book...In summary, this is a good book for both beginners and advanced XML developers. Keep up the good work O’Reilly!"
