Great beginning XML book

This book comes highly recommended for someone who may or may not know about XML but has very little idea how to understand it or start writing their own XML. One word of caution, please remember that with such a new technology this book can become outdated very quickly. You may become frustrated with the examples and/or code as the technology changes.
The author's main example works with baseball statistics throughout the book. The book begins by introducing XML. It shows what XML looks like, how other technologies surrounding XML (CSS, XSL) fit together, various versions of XML (like the Chemical Markup Language) and building your first XML document with the standard 'Hello World!' example. Next comes the meat of the book. The author discusses how to effectively structure your XML using elements and attributes. He shows what is proper and improper XML structure and briefly shows how XSL can format your XML.
The author spends quite a bit of time on Document Type Definitions (DTD's) which help you validate your XML. Please note that because this book is a bit outdated, the author does not treat Schema's, which are increasingly becoming popular as an alternative to DTD's (A great book that discusses DTD's vs. Schemas is Wrox's VB6 XML). After DTD's, we get an in-depth look at transforming your XML using both Cascading Style Sheets and XSL. XSL formatting is also treated.
To finish the text, the author looks at what he calls "supplemental technologies" to XML - XLinks (like HTML hyperlinks for XML), XPointers (addresses specific parts of XML document) and namespaces (differentation between formatting and data in your XML/XSL) and the more advanced part of this book, XML applications where you would actually use your XML now that you have figured out how to write it.
The book is a great introduction to XML and it does what it promises, it gets you up-to-speed on XML and has you writing your own documents right away.

The book for Wireless Networking!

Why limit yourself to vendor specific wireless networking certifications? This book covers all aspects of wireless networking not just specific vendor specifications and protocalls. This is the book to read to prepare yourself for the CWNA exam. This book will cover all areas on the CWNA exam as well as provide you with complete practice questions. The CWNA is quickly becoming the industry standard certification for wireless networking, because it encompasses all aspects of wireless networking and is one of the first networking certification that is not vendor specific. So why limit yourself to vendor specific training and certification when the CWNA can help you prepare for all aspects of the rapidly growing wireless networking industry. I would greatly recomend this book to anyone thinking about entering or expanding into wireless networking. I would also recomend that anyone thinking of entering the Networking industry highly consider training in wireless networking because it is a constantly and rapidly growing.
