      Not recommended for newcomers to XML, Structuring XML Documents immediately launches into document type definitions (DTDs), the book's main topic. Megginson's goal is to delve into the heart of XML through the use of DTDs. "Though the book necessarily deals with some of the idiosyncrasies of XML and SGML DTDs and uses XML syntax in its examples," he explains, "it deals with issues--such as learning, usability and ease of processing--that all document designers and analysts must understand, whether or not they use XML or SGML and whether they use DTD syntax or other notations to define their structures." Anyone unfamiliar with the basic concepts of XML would do well to steer to another title; anyone ready to use XML and plan the necessary architecture for its implementation will appreciate Megginson's authority.

      Card catalog description
      Structuring XML Documents is the perfect book for you, if you're tired of  toy exercises and are ready to build XML/SGML DTDs for real-world document systems; you need to write DTDs that work both for your authors and for your computer specialists; you're starting with XML and want to make the most of it; and you already use HTML or SGML and want to try XML. In this book, David Megginson shares his extensive expertise in quality structured document design and DTD development. Starting with five detailed industry-standard models, learn how to analyze DTDs and adapt them for your specific needs; build DTDs that are easier to learn, use, and process; ensure structural compatibility throughout your DTDs; and use the new Architectural Forms standard to simplify complex DTD problems.
