book . XML Handbook
This afternoon, I purchased a copy of Charles GoldFarb and Paul Prescodís XML Hand Book, Third Edition (You can find a newer fifth edition at Amazon.com). This is the first computer book I purchased since college days for I was relying on downloaded e-books, various online reference materials and Google for more than five years already. But the book for its price is something I find so hard to resist. Located in between another XML book worth P2335.00 and an HTML related book for P1240, the said book is only P175.
I have to blink my eyes a couple more times to check if thereís damage, a typo or a blot in the price tag. I was calling out Evoschukeís name while I was in the counter hoping that the price will remain that way even after the swipe. Evoschuke is the goddess of barcodes, price tags and red lasers by the way.
Two CDs, which include 170+ XML tools and stuff, are even included in the book.
Europa, the next version of Visual Foxpro, promises a better support for XML. The demand for XML support even exceeded expectations for a better and improved Report Designer. This, and other countless things, makes XML a good thing to tinker, exploit and abuse.
