======================================= PRESS RELEASE -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ======================================= Manning Publications announces the release of: XSLT Quickly By Bob DuCharme A V A I L A B L E J U N E 2 0 0 1 "When you have an XML problem and a deadline problem, this book will pinpoint the transformation techniques you need now!" --David Marston, XSLT Quality Engineering Specialist, Lotus/IBM Greenwich, CT -- As XML continues to win converts, demand for XSLT continues to grow. This W3C standard and the range of free software springing up around it make it possible to convert an XML document into other XML documents or even to non-XML formats such as HTML, RTF, and flat text. XSLT Quickly has two parts: Part 1 is a tutorial that gets the reader up to speed in XSLT. It is short, deliberate, and covers all the basic concepts needed for the most common XSLT tasks. Part 2 is a task-oriented users guide to more advanced techniques for XML document manipulation. It is not organized by keywords and XSLT syntax, but by the XSLT tasks themselves--for example, converting elements to attributes or reading in multiple documents at once. This makes it easy to find help quickly. The book also includes a glossary, a quick reference to XSLT syntax, and a thorough index to help the reader find information as easily as possible. XSLT Quickly is designed for people who want to hit the ground running with XSLT development: web designers, Java developers, and anyone interested in the latest XML technology. For a closer look at XSLT Quickly, Manning offers components of the book online: the table of contents, two sample chapters, the index and source code can be viewed at www.manning.com/ducharme/. Manning's Author Online forums are becoming recognized as valuable places for readers to pose questions to authors like Bob DuCharme and to discuss with them topics related to their books. Found at the book's web page, Author Online is open to all visitors, including those who do not own the book. For developers in a hurry, Manning titles are also published as PDF ebooks which contain the complete text and illustrations of the printed editions, plus a linked index and bookmarks to every entry in the Table of Contents. They can be purchased from the publisher's website at a substantial saving off the printed version price. The ebook price is subtracted from the price of a subsequent purchase of the same book in hardcopy from Manning's site.
