Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

With this book, writers and editors can learn what they need to know to prepare and structure documents using the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), the new standard for electronic and database publishing. This book presents a non-technical overview of SGML in language that writers and editors can understand. It explains why SGML focuses on structure and essentially disregards formatting issues and shows how to define a document's structure, writing with SGML structure in mind. It then focuses on dialects of SGML such as HTML, designed for hypertext; and HyTime, an SGML standard that incorporates multimedia objects such as sound, video and animation. The diskette contains SGMLAB, a full-featured SGML application that includes both an SGML parser and document browser, as well as sample SGML files. SGMLAB enables a user to view SGML documents on MS-DOS systems.

If you not only want to learn SGML painlessly but also want to have a background on the subject, read this book. The author was careful to explain the important aspects of SGML in an easy to read way. When he presents the real code, you will notice how easy it is to read just because he has already explained it in an easy way. I recommend one chapter a day, every day. When you finish it, go back and read again, not in order, but specific parts that interest you.

Ok guys, this is the mother language of the HTML format. Read this book now. The insight on how to not just arrange and develop a good doc flow in any program is just the tip of the ice berg. Wait till you understand how it gives you intuitive insight in creating web sites or figuring out others sites.

Even if you do not get to program in these languages yourself you will surely be able to describe or design what you want on a story board or paper, and give this to your web designers or other doc control people.

It's a fast read and the extra plus side comes if you decide you really want to write html or other doc languages. This is the place to start.

Order it now.
