Announce: Revised XSLT/XPath Tutorial Materials

   Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath
   (XSL Transformations and the XML Path Language)
   Fourth Edition - 1999-08-02 - ISBN 1-894049-01-2
   Copyright (C) 1999 Crane Softwrights Ltd.

New in the Fourth Edition:

(1) - a title change to reflect the change in W3C recommendations
     - for customer update purposes, this is considered a revision to the 
publication "Introduction to XSLT" (Third Edition)

(2) - all constructs of 19990709 XSLT and XPath are documented

(3) - the free download preview has been enhanced with:
       - a graphical depiction of axes
       - documentation for XT NXML (non-XML) semantics and syntax
       - a proposed list of questions to ask vendors regarding
         XSLT product functions and features
     - still included in the free download preview:
       - the full text of the first two and last two modules to give
         an overview of the writing style and access to the summary
         information for the drafts and some tools (XT and IE5)
       - the lesson summary and overview pages for every other module

As with our other editions of this XSLT training material, the purchase of 
any edition of this publication entitles the customer to any future edition 
of the same title (or in this case when the same subject material gets a 
new name from the W3C, with the revised title).

Information can be obtained from the link below to the "Commercial Training 
Materials" section the Crane web site.
