Best XSLT Reference Available 8 janvier 2001
Par Brent Foust - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an excellent way to learn XSLT. The progression of chapters makes it both easy and exciting to read, in anticipation of learning about even more of XSLT's features.
The book is well written, but there are at least a couple of typos in the examples. The description is generally clear enough that there will generally be no confusion (such as the ending "</xsl:test> tag on page 132, instead of "</xsl:if>" -- although the <if> tag typo on page 127 causes more confusion).
Filters, XPath expressions, and using named templates as subroutines are covered well, and many other useful tidbits are given, such as how to output in HTML format (no closing tags), passing comments through to the output file, and suppressing the output of unnecessary namespace declarations. Calling Java methods from XSLT is also covered.
I especially liked the explanation of how to reorganize input into a completely different order in the output, as well as how to insert content from other XML files.
The formatting language called "XSL" is also covered in detail in the last half of the book, if you have a need to learn it. Hopefully, browsers begin to support it soon.
The only material that I wanted to see covered that wasn't is how to perform arithmetic expressions (multiplication, division, and modulus, for example, although addition and subtraction are supported and examples are given).
This is the best XSLT reference that I've found, but beware that much of the examples do not work in Microsoft IE 5.0 (or even 5.5 -- even with the latest 3.0 msxml parser). There are several issues, one of which is that the "[...] XSL namespace is not recognized and an older one must be used, instead). But the book references several parsers that *do* work with the latest XSLT spec, including XP and XT.
This is really a great book on XSLT, XPath, and XSL!

Converting XML documents 14 octobre 2002
Par W Boudville - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Computing seems to have a propensity to generate an
awesome acronym soup; two examples being XSL and XSLT.
The difference between these is rather nuanced.
Frankly, for most purposes, I would consider them
interchangeable. But if you really want to know the
difference, this book does a neat job explaining.
Both have to do with manipulating XML documents. XSLT
transforms an XML document into another document. The
output can be XML, or any other format, with XHTML
being a popular choice. XSLT does not necessarily have
anything to do with presentation, per se. It is a
declarative language, like SQL, and unlike C or java,
which are procedural languages. If the latter is your
background, this may be your biggest impedence
mismatch. Takes some getting used to. But the text is
clearly written to help you along.
Pure XSL, on the other hand, is an XML based
formatting language. It is explicitly for displaying
documents. In fact, it draws many of its property
names and actions from CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
This was done to let those familiar with the latter
pick up XSL quickly. There is a long chapter on XSL
that goes exhaustively through its many properties.
TeX and troff gurus will see numerous layout concepts
redone here in new flesh.
Overall, a very useful and up to date book. The
examples and accompanying text do succinctly convey
the meanings intended. This book has clarity. You are
not deluged in unnecessarily complicated explanations.
I do have some caveats. Firstly, tree diagrams are
drawn from left to right?! Those from a computer
science background are used to trees always being
drawn from top to bottom. A minor thing, but still a
little offputting. Like reading a book where all the
pages are in landscape mode, instead of portrait mode.
Secondly, XML is case sensitive, unlike HTML, as the
author points out. So, for example, <body> and <BODY>
mean the same thing in HTML. But <atag> and <ATAG> are
not the same in XML. The problem is that in many
places, the author writes a tag in a body of code, in
lower case, like <root>. But he then refers to it in
the text as Root, capitalised for emphasis. This can
be very confusing to an XML newcomer.
Lastly, many chapters could have done with problem
sets and possibly answers. I understand that this
would add to the book length. But it would greatly aid
the reader, by giving her something to attack, instead
of merely reading. Subject retention and all that.
Especially apropos because the subject lends itself to
explicit problem composition. Answers are objective;
not just some vague essay writing. Plus, unlike some
other software topics, the questions and answers can
be concisely stated. There is no need for a mass of
source code.

Excellent book; short, to the point and well written 30 décembre 2000
Par J. DEATS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With index and all this book is just a tad over 300 pages. For the price you may be tempted to look to other books; I would urge you not to. After a in depth read of the first three chapters and a quick scan of the remaining chapters I feel this author is very capable of providing condensed information for the intermediate-advanced level developer. Any more than 300 pages would require unneeded "fluff" thrown in to attempt to make the book more useful to everyone, and would only frustrate the intermediate-advanced developer who's time is valuable.
For my needs this book was perfect. It povided very detailed information on XSL and explained how XSL relates to XSLT and XPath, it also explained XQL. If you pick up a general XML book you usually will only find one or two chapters (two at best) discussing XSL. This book is intended as a companion to a general XML book (XML For Dummies, or this authors own XML Companion come to mind) this book assumes you know what XML is, what a DTD is, etc...
I have searched for a book to teach XSL to perform complex filtering and grouping in the output, prior to reading this book I had read: XML for dummies (IDG Press) and Professional ASP XML (Wrox Press), this book goes into much better detail and is a pefect companion to both of the books listed above.
The authors writting style is excellent, he provides many short examples of input/processing and output code in each chapter. He does not hold your hand and many of his descriptions have to be read a few times to fully grasp (XSL isn't as simple as you may think). Overall I feel very comfortable in saying this is the best book (and one of the only books) on the market to fully explain current XSL standards.

Cutting edge book for a cutting edge technology 25 octobre 2000
Par Water Monkey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The need for the separation of content from format in web design has been apparent for some time now. XSL is just the newest piece to be adopted. Combined with XML a designer is given great control over data flow and format within their web site.
"The XSL Companion" teaches the webmaster how to implement this language. I found the book to be clear and easy to understand. The code example were helpful. While I still consider myself an XML newbie, I think this book will remain "close at hand" for all my future projects.

a lot of knowledge in a simple and few words 23 janvier 2003
Par Javed Iqbal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am working on my IBM XML exam and had to study "Professional XML" and other books.
I found out there are two types of computer books
1) one type can tell you the same things in few pages(200-300 pages) and (of course in cheap price) without wasting your time and money.
2)second type will tell you the same things in 800-900 pages with price upto 60$ and size that will make you afraid even to pick up the book.(mostly "Professional series")
this book is from the first category. the author has done an excellent job to simply the understanding of how XSL,XSLT and XSL:FO works. what are different ways to do the same thing, whats the adv/dis to do them.
I got a chance to borrow it from my public library.
you may not find solid examples(only fragments) but believe me you wont miss the concept what the author is trying to teach at that point(he will use picture, fragment or whatever).
so here is the summary, if you want to save your time and money, pick this book.
