For example, on page 198 (Chapter 11) there is an example Complex Type declaration that will not validate. The Complex Type is derived from a Simple Type by restriction, which is not permitted according to the W3C standard, and produces an error in the validator. And no, the Complex Type in question is not presented as an example of invalid code.
In many places in Chapter 10, there are Attribute and Element declarations featuring stray colon characters which render the code invalid. For example, from page 163:
<xsd:element name="dailyTask": type="xsd:time">
That colon coming just before the word "type" is not valid. The chapter is full of them. If that's a typo, its very unfortunate that it is repeated so often, because the colon is reserved for use with namespace prefixes. If the stray colons are some kind of notation that I just don't get, I would welcome someone setting me straight.
The author breaks everything down in the smallest usable parts and then explains what is going on. This approach makes using this book to compose complex solutions very natural for an OO programmer. The layout is such that you can find what your looking for very quickly, and the Index is very Itemized.. like a good XML document should be.
I had been using a friends copy, but loved it so much I bought one for myself... good reference for the novice and experienced.
In my mind, I've retitled the XML Pocket Consultant "The XML Comprehensive Quick Reference." The book presents every aspect of XML and related technologies in a clear, crisp, understandable style. The book's excellent content is augmented by a professionally crafted visual style (page layout, whitespace, typeface, headings, list construction, examples) that facilitates information access and transfer; I mention this because too many books of this type look like they were designed and produced using consumer-level desktop publishing software.
I'm not normally this enthusiastic about a book, but The XML Pocket Consultant is truly a treasure: It's the single most useful, helpful, 5.5" x 8" x 1.2" compendium of XML information I've so far found.
The XML Pocket book covers:
And as in Stanek's other Pocket Consultant's the book manages to do in 400 pages what no other books I've seen can: it provides comprehensive, clearly detailed, useful information. Someone should speak to Stanek's publisher. They could have sold this as two books. One covering XML, DTDs and XML Schemas and another covering namespaces, XSL/XSLT, XLink and XPath. These two books at 200 pages would still have more information than the other bloated books on the market and could have been priced the same as the current volume for 2x the money--I would have paid it. Heck, I paid nearly 2x the current cover price for O'Reilly's poorly done book on XSLT.
In closing, I think you should buy the pocket consultant because it's a no nonsense, clear, detailed, easy to use resource. I'm very happy with my book.
