These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

This book focuses on standards that are relevant to almost all developers working with XML. We investigate XML technologies that span a wide range of XML applications, not those that are relevant only within a few restricted domains. XML is not a programming language. It is a markup language; but it is successfully used by many programmers. The book also covers generic supporting technologies that have been layered on top of XML and are used across a wide range of XML applications. These technologies include XLinks, XSLT, Namespaces, Schemas, XHTML, RDDL, XPointers, XPath, SAX, and DOM.

Features:

  • Includes XML standards including syntax, DTD, CSS stle sheets, etc.
