My book "The XML & SGML Cookbook" has just been released last week.
(Actually, it sold out on the first day, I believe, but it is being
reprinted.) It is not a first book on XML (i.e. on syntax), but it has a lot
of hard-to-find material that is not covered anywhere else. It is certainly
worthwhile looking at, or getting your library to order.

Note: At least one major online company has put it under the keyword
"cooking", so you may have to look for "Jelliffe"; some book shops have it
under the name "The SGML Cookbook" which was the working title when I
started it 2 years ago.

Simon St Laurent, who also is on this list, has a good introductory book.
There is a flood of XML books coming: it is very exciting.

The best version of the XML specification available online is the annotated
one at  (See Features: Annotated XML at the left)
