Announce: Sixth Edition of XSLT/XPath Tutorial Materials

   Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath
   (XSL Transformations and the XML Path Language)
   Sixth Edition - 1999-11-19 - ISBN 1-894049-03-9
   Copyright (c) 1999 Crane Softwrights Ltd.
   310 Pages / Subscription price includes free updates

New in the comprehensive Sixth Edition:

(1) - all constructs of the W3C Recommendations for XSLT 1.0 and XPath 1.0 
are documented

(2) - illustrations have been updated with new content in response to 
comments and questions

(3) - a ZIP file is provided with all of the XML and XSLT sample files used 
in the book

(4) - the reference annexes in the free preview excerpt download have been 
updated to the REC and to the latest version of XT

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 material.  Note that the work on this material *has not 
stopped* ... work will continue on a prose version of the book, formatted 
with XSL (while I begin writing the "Practical Formatting Using XSL" material).

Information can be obtained from the link below to the "Commercial Training 
Materials" section the Crane web site (also the location of the free 
preview download).

For those of you who have already downloaded the free excerpt preview, you 
may wish to download a new one with the revised diagrams and 
annexes.  Also, if you only had access to US-letter sized in the past, you 
can now download the preview in A4 size.

.............. Ken
