XSLT, 2nd Edition Second Edition
After years of anticipation and delay, the W3C finally released the XSLT 2.0 standard in January 2007. The revised edition of this classic book offers practical, real-world examples that demonstrate how you can apply XSLT stylesheets to XML data using either the new specification, or the older XSLT 1.0 standard.
XSLT is a critical language for converting XML documents into other formats, such as HTML code or a PDF file. With XSLT, you get a thorough understanding of XSLT and XPath and their relationship to other web standards, along with recommendations for a honed toolkit in an open platform-neutral, standards-based environment. This book:
- Covers the XSLT basics, including simple stylesheets and methods for setting up transformation engines
- Walks you through the many parts of XSLT, particularly XSLT's template-based approach to transformations
- Applies both XSLT 1.0 and 2.0 solutions to the same problems, helping you decide which version of XSLT is more appropriate for your project
- Includes profuse examples that complement both the tutorial and the reference material
The new edition of XSLT has been updated thoroughly to explain XSLT 2.0's many dependencies, notably XML Schema and XPath 2.0. Want to find out how the 2.0 specification improves on the old? This book will explain.

After scanning over the web for dozens of hours, Tidwell's book came from Amazon and I finished my project with pristine XSL script - solely from this book and no useful information from any other source.
I know SQL Server would have been a lot easier, but extremely huge, expensive, not clean, and ugly to maintain; XSLT is the answer for detail freaks like myself. The browser knows how to handle XSL and XML so there is no reason to spend hours making up SQL Queries when XSL files are so self documenting.
Buy this book if you are grappling. The source code is downloadable and unzips into 21 folders with a total of 584 xml, dtd, and xsl files. Doing XSL or XML? BUY THIS BOOK and you will be a glad you did.

Keinen Spaß macht leider das Format. Ich lese Bücher gerne im Zug oder in der U-Bahn, aber bei über 900 Seiten ist das im vorliegenden Fall ausgeschlossen. Wenigstens die sehr ausführliche Referenz hätte man sich elektronisch gewünscht. Mit einer Volltext-Indizierung ist das für ein Nachschlagewerk eine Alternative.
Nur ein Punkt Abzug, obwohl das Buch gemessen an meinen Bedürfnissen unbrauchbar ist, sollte Lob genug sein.
