XSLT programmer's reference by Michael Kay( Book )

32 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is this book about?. This compact, relevant, updated version reflects recent changes in the XSLT specification and developments in XSLT parsers. The material on tools and implementations has been revised; so too have all the examples. It also includes a new chapter on writing extension functions. XML has firmly established itself as the universal standard for managing data for the web and is now being implemented on a wide scale. XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language), a vital companion to XML, is used for two main purposes: to format or style XML data so that it can be displayed in a brows
XSLT 2.0 programmer's reference by Michael Kay( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is the authoritative reference guide to the language. Without using the formal and inaccessible language of the W3C specifications, it tells_the reader_exactly what every construct in the language does, and how it is intended to be used. It is a reference rather than a tutorial; it is designed for the professional programmer who is using the language every day. It is the book that people quote when they claim that a particular product is giving the wrong answer, and the book that implementers of the language turn to when they want clarification of the specifications. At the same time, the book_is readable. Reviews of the previous editions show that readers appreciate the background material on the design thinking behind the language, the essay on functional programming, the occasional dry wit, the gentle criticism of the language specification when appropriate, and the fact that the examples stray into a diverse range of interesting application areas
XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0 : programmer's reference by Michael Kay( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is primarily a practical reference book for professional XSLT developers. It assumes no previous knowledge of the language, and many developers have used it as their first introduction to XSLT; however, it is not structured as a tutorial, and there are other books on XSLT that provide a gentler approach for beginners. The book does assume a basic knowledge of XML, HTML, and the architecture of the Web, and it is written for experienced programmers. There's no assumption that you know any particular language such as Java or Visual Basic, just that you recognize the concepts that all pr
XPath 2.0 programmer's reference by Michael Kay( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is this book about? XPath 2.0 Programmer's Reference is the only authoritative reference on XPath, a sub-language within XSLT that determines which part of an XML document the XSLT transforms. Written for professional programmers who use XML every day but find the W3C XPath specifications tough to slog through, this book explains in everyday language what every construct in the language does and how to use it
