Good XML-Relevant SGML Books for Beginners?

I recommend this book:

Sgml on the Web: Small Steps Beyond H.T.M.L.
(Charles F. Goldfarb Series on Open Information Management)
Yuri Rubinsky, Murray Maloney

It was written before XML, and really doesn't get into
a lot of the area where XML will be used.  But it does
show what SGML can do beyond HTML.  And it stimulates
and provokes us to take advantage of SGML's (or XML's)
power to publish in new ways for users that HTML can't.

It also comes with the full Panorama Pro browser, so you
can experiment immediately with writing and reading
SGML, in the interactive way that XML will be providing.

Plus, it is just a really nice, humane book that is easy
enough for SGML beginners to understand, where so many
of the other SGML books are far too technical for newbies.
