LINQ to SML
But, the introduction of LINQ to XML has a "2nd generation" approach to XML reading, writing and manipulation in the Framework. The current volume devotes one chapter at 32 pages to the topic -- clear but relatively scant.
If you think you may want to use LINQ to XML, Pro LINQ: Language Integrated Query in C# 2008 (Windows.Net) offers an extended discussion at 150 pages -- with an excellent compare and contrast with the DOM version. That provides a good analysis of the approach best for your tasks and a solid explanation of implementation.
I needed the first five chapters to acquire the skills i needed to complement with the xslt. This book is good compared with some i have reviewed in the past 7 years.
Definitely novice to pro book as titled :)
