What is this book about?
Beginning XML, 3rd Edition, like the first two
editions, begins with a broad overview of the technology and then
focuses on specific facets of the various specifications for the
reader. This book teaches you all you need to know about
XML: what it is, how it works, what technologies surround it,
and how it can best be used in a variety of situations, from simple
data transfer to using XML in your Web pages. It builds on the
strengths of the first and second editions, and provides new
material to reflect the changes in the XML landscape —
notably RSS and SVG.
