About the Author

He helped to establish a complete publishing solution using DocBook-XML and Perl to produce books in print, on CD-ROM, and for the new Safari web library of books. As the author of the O'Reilly best seller Learning XML and numerous articles to technical journals, Erik is known for his clear and entertaining writing style. When not hammering out code, he enjoys playing card games, reading about hemorrhagic fevers, practicing Buddhist meditation, and collecting toys. He lives in Saugus, MA with his wife Jeannine and 7 parrots.


"...this is not a skimpy overview of XML, but rather a complete introduction to Extensible Markup Language that quickly provides the web developer with a grounding in both how to use it, and what to use it for. The beginner will appreciate the outlining of markup elements, the demystification of concepts, and the code examples aplenty to play with. Those with a basic understanding will like the lack of bloat, and will still find it a useful reference to dip back into when hit by an attack of 'what the heck to I do now', which we all know only too well. Whether you need to get to grips with core concepts, top up your knowledge of Xlink and Xpointer specs, go back to language syntax basics or investigate schemas such as W3C Schema, Schmatron and RELAX-NG, you'll find it all here." Davey Winder, PC Plus, March (7/10)
