I recently bought QUE's Using XML. Although the author is apparently hugely intelligent, nowhere in over 800 pages does she give the straightforward explantions you do. Could demonstrate some more complex formatting ...

Scott are your CSS' purposefully set up to allow the body text to exceed screen width of 17"?
Every article as of 6 months ago acts like it is formatted for 19" monitors.

|I have been researching XML and XSL for two weeks now. I just got back from CNET Live/EDEVCON in New Orleans. The conference covered a lot of XML and XSL. Scott, because this is very well written and very easy to follow and you were able to turn on the lights for me. Thanks.|

|I had never considered using xml before, but this article has sparked my interest. Thanks, Scott: well written, friendly, easy to follow!|

I would like the author to make some reference to the xmlns since there is now one called 1999/XML/transform for stylesheets.
There are a number of examples using both and they are not interchangeable.

scott's article was well written. i liked the overall presentation of the information. he described the content in a straightforward way. some of the more interesting points of the markup were left unexplained however and those things that i was interested in pursuing were put on hold in a "future article" which was disappointing. the relationship among these "technologies" was not made explicit, i.e., the mechanics. i guess i need to view source. but the main point was a good one in increasing my interest in exploring further. thanks.

Another great article ! I really like the idea of representing content using XML and then rendering it diferently based on who / what is using it. In the article a sample XML structure is used to describe the articles 'content', is anyone aware of any DTD's that describe content in a standard way, like HTML, but without the presentation stuff.
Thanks in advance,

|An excellent introduction article on XML, as a software developer of e:commerce solutions I can see lots of advantages to using XML. I look forward to more articles.|

|http//www.refsnesdata.no has tutorials on HTML, CSS, XML and XHTML with working examples and lots of source code.|

|I finnally found an article that makes me understand this whole XML and XSL. I can't wait it to be supported by more browsers and be more developed.|

Use real XSL!!!
Although the article was informative and the practical uses for XML + XSL were explained properly, there was one thing that caught my eye: you are using MSXSL!
If you really want to contribute to XML + XSL, don't use this. It's a proprietary and outdated version that will no longer work on any other XSL processor.

You need to add an </META> tag (you need to XML-ize the META tag). When the HTML is generated, the </META> tag will just be ignored by the browser.

I just cut and pasted the code and viewed it in IE5, but the keyword diplay on the page as value="xml, xsl". Can't figure out what I did wrong. How does the parser know that the atributes that are defined below the <meta> tag are associated with it since the tag is empty?
<xsl:if test="context()[not(end())]">, </xsl:if>

Of course I like the article. It follows up with real examples all the high-flying ideas I see at scripting.com.
What I'd really like to see is downloadable examples of the XML, XSL, and CSS files to play with.

|Just did a quick read, but I can't wait to go over it in more detail and start implementing XML and XSL into my site.|

At last I understand how XML and XSL work!!! Up until know all I've heard,read and seen is articles talking about how great XML and XSL is but no-one was helpful enough to actually show us some basic examples so we could understand the concepts.
|cparrish on Jul 2, 1999 at 7:21:19 PM||Rating: 5|
|Gave me a clear understanding of the concepts. ( Now I want to run and get started codeing). But I couldn't get the example at the end to run. Anyone else?|

Fabulously done. Extremely well written. As was stated above, this is the first how to accomplish article that I have seen in a long time that clearly laid out how the goals were accomplished. Please have more like thos. And when is the Book coming Out!!!

|I thought it was great. First real step-by-step tutorial I've seen. I'd love to print it, but it's not easily done.|

|Excellent presentation style on the most relevant topic for me. Look forward to trying to understand the server side techniques that will be necessary for deployment.|
|Chuckleshb on Jun 17, 1999 at 1:43:37 PM||Rating: 5|
I'm thoroughly impressed. First time someone has clearly shown how useful and productive these languages can be as a whole instead of glorifying just one. Almost TOO easy to follow. Can't wait for the book! (hint... hint... hint)
Once again, great job!

|Very easy to understand and the examples were well presented. However, like most new things I'll have to try it out myself to really become familar with the technology. I look forward to seeing additional articles along these lines. The blending of XML, HTML, and CSS is certainly going to change the way web pages are developed. It will be essential to have the proper tools available to adhere to the XML and the new HTML standards.|
|sand_e on Jun 17, 1999 at 12:21:09 AM||Rating: 5|
|This is the first time I have got so much exposed to XSL,XML,CSS in that order; XSL particularly. I am sure this is one of the first article of this kind on whatever I have found on the web. |
And the example is so elementary, explanatory, and most simple to follow.
Looking forward to article on scripts for transforming XSL+XML -> XML/HTML. Please hurry, can't wait.
Thank you very much.

|Excellent entry level XML doc. Couldnt find anything else on the net that has just the right level of tech, but not massivly complex like XML can be. All i could want is some serverside/clientside comparisons, (for when I hack on the Macs, heh)|
also, how would I go about utilizing this server side with ASP?
|jmorley on Jun 15, 1999 at 7:16:23 AM||Rating: 5|
|Good level for me. Clearly demonstrates how XML, HTML, and CSS fit together and the examples are not overly detailed. Looking forward to more. (When are you folks coming out with another book?)|
