Description

The first complete guide to the new XSL standard for styling web and print documents.

  • XSL: The "next big thing" after XML!
  • Detailed examples and illustrations for every XSL feature.
  • By the author of the successful XML Companion.
XSL is the "next big thing" after XML: the brand-new standard for styling web and print documents, just finalized. This concise, thorough, easy-to-use guide teaches web developers and designers all they need to know to get results with XSL right now. Following the format of XML Companion, Neil Bradley reviews each key XSL application, from print-on-paper to dynamic web sites; then explains every XSL feature clearly, with many examples and illustrations. Bradley goes beyond the standard, showing how XSL can be used in today's most popular web browsers, and how to work around XSL's limitations, including its restrictions as a general transform language.

Neil Bradley is an XML consultant with 15 years experience as a systems analyst and developer. He is author of SGML Companion and XML Companion.
