4.0 out of 5 stars A book for when u need to do something....., November 1, 2001
This review is from: XSLT and XPath On The Edge (Paperback)
my first impressions are
a) this book sits right next to Michael Kay's book, as it is a great
reference to when u have specific problems i.e. ' How do i format dates ? '
and ' How do i group ' and 'How do i use keys'.
b) the level of examples and techniques is a step above introductory.
c) the latter half of the book delves into framework issues; modular
components, extending XSLT, functional modules, and
grouping
sorting
numeric manipulation
string and text manipulation
general formatting
character encoding and entities
the above subjects are all detailed in a concise manner, perfect for
reference
the following subjects are an indepth read;
framework: quite a large amt of discussion of how to break apart into
reusable elements
client side msxml: this will get the novice going
server side proc with cocoon: this will get the novice going
overview of XPATH: very detailed overview of more medium level techniques
using extensions : the clearest illustration and techniques of extending
xslt that i've read
overall i can highly recc.
cheers, jim fuller
