XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: August 2005
Pages: 178

XSLT is an essential tool for converting XML into other kinds of documents: HTML, PDF file, and many others. It's a critical technology for XML-based platforms such as Microsoft .NET, Sun Microsystems' Sun One, as well as for most web browsers and authoring tools. As useful as XSLT is, however, most people have a difficult time getting used to its peculiar characteristics. The ability to use advanced techniques depends on a clear and exact understanding of how XSLT templates work and interact.

The XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference from O'Reilly wants to make sure you achieve that level of understanding. With its concise approach, this handy pocket guide quickly gets you up to speed on XSLT 1.0 so you can covert XML like a seasoned pro. In addition to covering the basics of stylesheet structure, it also explains how to:

  • use template rules
  • create a result tree
  • apply conditional processing
  • transform multiple source documents
  • employ number formatting

Thanks to their convenient, quick-reference format, O'Reilly's Pocket References spare you from having to hunt through larger books for answers. They deliver just what you need to get the job done in a timely fashion. And the XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference is no different--it's the ideal companion to have at your desk when you need an answer fast.

A perfect distillation of XPath and XSL into a pocket-size book

By Jim Garrison

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly XSLT 1.0 Pocket Reference:

This book represents an amazing feat of distilling all you really need to know about XSL 1.0 into 170 pocket-sized pages. What's more amazing is that an experienced developer with little prior XML/XSL experience can actually learn enough from this little gem to write competent XSL.

A reference manual AND quality tutorial in 1/20th the space (and dead trees) of most tech books these days. I've recommended this to several of my colleagues who had to get up to speed on XSL for a new project, and the reaction from them is the same as mine.... This was EXACTLY what I needed.

It's a shame there are no plans for Evan to write the corresponding XSLT 2.0 pockete reference.
