Dare, who is a program manager on the XML team, recommends visiting
MSDN's XML Dev Center
to learn more about XML. How about you? What are the best places to learn about XML (and subsets like RSS)?

    Essential XML (Box, Skonnard, and Lam) has to be my favorite XML book. We used to call it the "Gay Porn XML Book" because of the cover art. Smiley
  • Here is a great RSS page:


    Don't bother with RSS 0.91 or 0.92.

    Have you seen the Amazon reviews lately for the Don Box book? They suck  big-time.
  • Don't put too much faith in the Amazon reviews. A recent bug on their site revealed extensive cheating with Authors writing good reviews for their own books and bad for their competitors.

    I also read the reviews on Amazon before ordering new books, so I don't think they are totally irrelevant. You just have to read them with sceptical mode turned on.

    I agree. So I tested it out. I visited Waterstone's (UK book store) today at lunch. Found Don's book. Paged through the schemas chapter (as suggested by an Amazon reviewer). Dense. Unreadable. Turgid.

    Not a book I am going to buy.

    Let me know what you think.
