I suspect this book may not be low-level enough for some (most?) Slashdot readers -- it spends too little space on technical details and too much on general descriptions of different DTDs; for complete information about the topics covered, you'll still have to read the relevant working drafts. The technical explanations that are given, particularly the two chapters on XML syntax, are as good as any I've seen, but they don't make up the bulk of the book. XML by Example would be a good book to give to a boss, or as a wide overview of the ongoing activity surrounding XML. Unfortunately the book is marred by poor copy-editing and typography, a fault common to several other books in Prentice Hall's XML series.
