A quick and easy introduction to key XML technologies.

In this quick and easy introduction to key XML technologies, Web Design with XML adds another dimension to XML, demonstrating how to generate visual output using XML DTDs, Namespaces, CSS, XSL, and XSLT, all illustrated with examples.

* All examples are available for download from the accompanying Web site and can easily be used for server-side web page generation as well as for client-side rendering
* Contains easy-to-use techniques requiring no programming know-how
