The book covers most of the XML related topics. Detailed analysis of various tags used in XML, XSL etc are covered. I liked the flow of the book. Part I of the book gives you an overview of the XML/XSL technology. Part II and III walk you through some detailed definitions and examples. The examples build on top of the previous chapters. Hence you need to read this book continuosly. Since I am fairly knowledgeable regarding the XML technologies, I was okay skipping some chapters. I didn't have enough time to review part IV, which covers XLinks, Xpointers and RDF.
Finally, I should add that this book places a lot of emphasis on XSL/CSS/XSLT. However, it fails to give a perspective about how XML technology is used in association with Java (or other) applications using SAX/DOM. To that effect this book is catogorized correctly being shelved in Web Development/XML and not XML applications.
The CD has all the resources needed. Besides the PDF version of the whole book, included in the CD are browsers, parsers, most of the XML related Specs, examples among others.
Its kind of like all in one when it comes to XML technology.
