I'm happy to announce that Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical, is
now available.

Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical provides a guide to XML with a sharp
focus on scientific and technical applications of this new technology. In
addition to XML itself, MathML, a core W3C standard that can be used in
many fields, receives extended coverage. The second half of Inside XML
DTDs: Scientific and Technical explores emerging XML standards and tools in
a number of fields, including biology, chemistry, astronomy, library
science, and meteorology. The conclusion explains what developers will need
to do in order to create their own applications of XML, and provides a
guide to integrating XML with current information architectures and practices.

Topics covered include:

     How XML Enhances Information Exchange 
     XML's Background 
     XML Document Structures 
     XML DTDs: Describing Document Content 
     XML DTDs: Describing Document Structures 
     Using XLink and XPointer to Connect Documents 
     Supporting Standards for XML 
     Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) 
     MathML Implementations 
     An Introduction to Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Dublin Core 
     The Virtual Hyperglossary (VHGTM) 
     Chemical Markup Language 
     Markup for Biology: BioML and BSML 
     Weather Observation Markup Format 
     Markup for Astronomy: AML 
     Markup for Instrument Control: AIML 
     Graphics Markup Languages 
     Building your Own Markup Language 
     Creating Networked Applications 
     Using Perl for XML Processing (with examples) 
     Using Java for XML Processing 
     Moving Beyond the Foundations 

For some reason, the cover just says "Inside XML DTDs", but Amazon has it
right. (Or close - they moved the colon.)  In any case, the ISBN is
0-07-134621-X, list price is $49.99, and it's becoming available at
electronic bookstores right now. It should hit the shelves of your local
bookstore soon.
