Teaches XSLT from the ground up for people with little or no knowledge of it.
  • Books on this subject have been highly technical and hard to grasp to date—Sams Teach Yourself XSLT in 21 Days is not one of those books.
  • Three XSLT projects are designed, and can be found in the three "Week in Review" sections of the book.
  • The only XSLT book that contains a "Designing XSLT Applications" chapter.
Sams Teach Yourself XSLT in 21 Days covers XSLT and Xpath (as a part of XSLT), as these topics have everything to do with processing XML. It also covers XML from an XSLT processing and design point-of-view. Other XML technologies will not be discussed, most notably XSL, as superset of XSLT. XSL Formatting Objects alone form enough material for an entire book. Apart from that XSLT and Xpath form the processing/programming section of the entire XSL specification. Michiel van Otegem is a frequent seminar speaker and consultant specializing in XML over the past two years, both overseas as well as in the US. He has written XML tutorials and articles for various magazines and Web sites. He has worked with XML ever since the Beta release of Microsoft Internet Explorer 4. He started working with XSLT once it was incorporated into the MSXML parser. He has created some content management tools and computational XSLT. Michiel has built a unique shopping system based on XSLT processing that has more capabilities than its database-driven counterparts. He specializes in the training and development of Web applications with XML, ASP(.NET), VB, Access/SQL Server, and Microsoft Transaction Server/COM+.
