    4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but could use more even level of detail
    Mr. Goldfarb is on a tear with yet another book about XML and XML technologies. In this case it's about the integration of XML into Microsoft's Office Suite for 2003. This is an impressive peice of work and it shows through in the book, which is far superior to his XML handbook, though it does suffer from similar problems. Once again the book has aggressively short chapters and has an uneven level of detail. In addition some of the chapters feel like a lift from the handbook, which is not necessarily a bad thing give that they are from the same author. And the book also has a strange organization, for instance leaving the explanation of XML standards and syntax to the last few chapters of the book.

    That being said the book is still far better than the XML Handbook. And I think in large part that has to do with the fascinating topic which is Microsoft's excellent work in integrating XML into their products. This is a worthy read, especially if you are a developer looking to leverage the XML capabilities of the Office suite.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great guide anyone with a little O2K3 experience can pick up
    With the XML advantages in the Office 2003 suite of applications not being glaringly obvious (at least not to me), I gave this book a whirl. I'm glad I did.

    It's consistent in its organization - presenting the capabilities of Word, Excel, Access, FrontPage, and Office forms to use, manage and manipulate XML-based data - first from within the applications themselves, and then from more robust subsystems using Office's embedded Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). It shows how easy it is to manage data by building great apps with simple scripts. (Notably missing was a discussion on the applications of XML within PowerPoint, although I'm admittedly unsure if that's even an issue.)

    The book's voice is very friendly and non-intimidating, using chapter around 15-30 pages at most, making for a pleasant, quick reading experience. On this note, I found the Excel chapters and those on WordML especially valuable. As far as the examples themselves, all were practical and easy to replicate locally, whether by menu or through code. There's a healthy lean towards the use of SOAP by making Web services calls for importation of data that's a great addition.

    The book also has something I found that many modern programming texts don't - an easy-to-understand explanation of schemas and how to construct them. All books discussing XML obviously make mention of the use of schema, but the vast majority don't explain it well. The authors do a great job of not only explaining schema's role in an app, but also how to build it, which is something newbies will appreciate.

    Still, in this day of modern distributed applications and datashaping, I also would have liked to see the VBA-based examples complemented/contrasted with .NET programming concepts and code, working against the APIs for each Office app. Also, one thing I found somewhat annoying was that the code, while complete and hearty, always referenced "in Line 25...and then in Line 30", without marking the lines of code, forcing the reader to manually count-and-mark the lines. This was a minor nuisance, but a nuisance nonetheless.

    But the good in this book far outweighs the bad, and the content and examples can be picked up by any level of staffer in the workplace who's familiar with Office apps. It's a great read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Using XML in Office 2003 - for technical writers
    In my efforts to learn and understand XML the past year and a half I have come upon a decided lack of interest for the subject among my technical writing colleagues. Single-sourcing with XML has simply been too difficult to set up. You need a DTD or schema (or EDD in FrameMaker) before your can start writing, and style sheets to present it. It seems that XML has mostly been used in web services like on-line shopping.

    If tech writers are using XML, it is probably because they were already using FrameMaker with SGML earlier and have just converted their documents to the XML version. Furthermore, if you are not using FrameMaker 7.0 as an authoring tool, you had to find some other new tool, like XMLSpy, Authentic or Veredus, which have many capabilities, but seem "geeky" to a tech writer.

    INTRODUCING XML IN OFFICE 2003
    You can't imagine how delighted I was to see this book recommended in a newsletter, because that was the first I'd heard about the XML facilities in Office 2003. When my husband updated to Office 2003, I bought the book to see how it works. To my dismay, I discovered that the XML facilities are only in the Professional edition, so I ordered a 30-day trial version of Office 2003 from Microsoft and started reading.

    One of the authors, Charles Goldfarb, has been in on XML since its conception (and birth, way back in 1998!) so he is one of the big XML gurus. Now gurus are not necessarily, by definition, good writers of introductory books. However, Goldfarb has his own series of excellent books, motivating and educating developers and users in the wonders of XML.

    This introduction is well structured and well thought out. All the steps are well described and easy to follow. There are even separate XML tutorials to bring beginners up to speed without boring more advanced users. The only difficulty I found is that the book is so richly illustrated that some steps refer to a screen capture on a following page.

    USING THE BOOK
    Part 1, Introducing Desktop XML, aims to motivate you with "The reason why" it's worth your while to get the 30-day trial version and keep on reading.

    Part 2, Working with XML in Office, has you creating XML documents in Word, using external XML data in spreadsheets, exporting and importing XML in Access and creating XML websites in FrontPage. You will also discover how easy it is to import XML data, like zip codes and stock market data, from the Internet. You can download all the code for the examples from www.XMLinOffice.com.

    INFOPATH
    An exciting new feature is a new Microsoft product, InfoPath, which you can use to create "smart" forms. The book includes a CD with a free 60-day trial version. InfoPath can become your front end to XML-enabled databases, or any other data-based XML application. (Note: you have to open the sample InfoPath documents in Design mode, and then publish them to your own computer to be able to see them in action.)

    XML TUTORIALS
    If you have never seen XML before, there is no need to shy away. Goldfarb provides you with all you need to know in Part 3, XML Tutorials, in the back of the book. Each chapter in Part 2 lists the skills you need to understand and perform its activities, with a reference to which tutorial to read prior to the chapter. So, while more experienced readers can start right off, beginners do a tutorial or two in the back of the book before starting each new chapter.

    USING XML IN OFFICE 2003
    I found working with XML in Office 2003 easy and intuitive. All the information you need is in the Task Pane on the right side of the screen. Just drag tags from the pane to your document. If you want to produce XML quickly, you can even use the built-in Word Markup Language (which catches every bit of Word's complicated style markup). Nevertheless, it is much better to learn what little you need to know to author pure XML in Word, which it does beautifully. XML is an open format that you can import into any other XML document in, say, FrameMaker, InDesign or Quark, so it is worth keeping it pure.

    BEYOND THE TUTORIALS
    Of course the hard part is making the first decision to actually create a working document in XML. Other than in tutorials and class exercises, I have not gotten there yet. I figure it won't be long before I update my 30-day trial to the real version of Office 2003. It really isn't difficult to get started, because Office 2003 provides you with a number of templates with all the necessary schemas and style sheets, which you can modify for your own use. Now you have to figure out how to convince your employer that this is exactly what you need to make your documentation work more efficient and user friendly. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The One source you need to answer any question about XML
    It took Charles Goldfarb, Paul Prescod and many others, sixty-seven chapters to explain all there is to know about XML and XML related technology. This book must be the most complete reference book when it comes to XML: any thing from history of XML in Chapter 1 to VoiceXML in Chapter 46 and everything in between. This book is filled, and each chapter is appropriately marked with, Introductory Discussions, Application Discussions, Tool Discussions, Case Studies and Friendly Tutorials.
    The author has broken the book into 24 distinct parts; each part can be studies independently as they are very well contained with background information, case study and appropriate discussions. The first part is devoted to readers who are not XML savvy, followed by three chapters of the basic XML use: Three-tier applications, E-Commerce and Integration. It is very much amazing to me how the author packs three very important topics in to less than one hundred pages, and gets the point across. If the topic get s a bit complicated like the chapter on Integration with the Web (chapter 13), the author quickly switches to a Case Study chapter and shows the reader how things are done by example.
    "Content is King". Reading this phrase at the beginning of Part 5 tells you that Goldfarb knows what he is talking about, because content IS king. Content Management must be one of the best parts of this book. A case study followed by a chapter on content systems (Chapter 16) and a chapter on what the key components of a Content Management is (chapter 17) really wheels the context in and the reader gets a very good understanding of what this growing field is all about. "Content is King". Content Acquisition, which is covered in Part 10, is another very well covered set of topics. Being is a VERY complicated topic, the authors (guest authors and experts who helped with writing this section) start off by explaining what syndicators and subscribers are: Content providers and content receivers. ICE, a new protocol for content delivery created by the ICE Authoring Group is introduced and used thru out the chapter. The authors add:

    "The ICE protocol defines a model for the ongoing management of syndication relationships, including the roles and responsibilities of syndicators and subscribers"

    Using ICE:
    - The syndicators can describe business rules
    - The syndicators can create and manage catalogs of subscription offers
    - A common format - XML, is used to exchange data between the syndicators and subscribers.
    - Various delivery modes such as push or pull and frequency of delivery can be indicated by the subscribers
    - The subscribers determine if content can be updated in delta format or otherwise
    - The content can be received from and sent to many locations and repository types.

    The authors show the power of the tool and how it can benefit the end user and their application content management needs.

    "... If Web Services really is a revolution, it may be the first in history to be led by the parties in power."

    Web Services are the next set of topics covered in this book and two parts (13 and 14) are devoted to Web Services and Service Oriented Architecture. The author starts by giving the reason and the background of where Web Services came from and why they are here. (This is very common for this author as he explains every XML technology first and gives the reason why it's here) The good thing about this section is that Web Services have yet to be proven and the author conveys that message well:

    "Web services is a very far-reaching and ambitious vision, with implications for all Web users and, if the goals are achieved, for much of the economy as well."

    The two big players in the Web Services world, mainly IBM and Microsoft helped in writing these two parts. It is very interesting to see that for the first time in a very long time, these two rivals see eye-to-eye about a technology such as Web services. A discussion of UDDI, the directory for discovering Web Services, WSDL, the Web Services Description Language, and SOAP are given. The icing on the cake is chapter 41 where experts from IBM talk about Service deployment and outlines the steps that need to be taken to do such task. The application that they deploy is very much useless, but the steps taken to deploy are priceless as they are very concise and clear. Service Oriented Architecture, their vision, methodology and benefits are given in chapter 42. The two main architectural patterns that are used today: service-centric design and the rich-client design are explained and are used as the groundwork to explain why SOA is a better approach to either of the two.

    Jumping to the last few parts of the book where the author[s] has added tutorials of all the major topics that were discussed in the text. XML Basics, Namespaces, DTD are just the beginning of some of the tutorials that added towards the end of this book. Whole parts are devoted to XPath, XSLT and XSL. XPointer also gets its own section with a chapter devoted to XLink. The great thing about these tutorials are that they are self contained and can be read independently of any other chapter of the book. They are quick study guides when you need them.

    C. Goldfarb, Paul Prescod and many experts that were involved in putting XML Handbook together did a great job in doing so. This book truly contains everything one needs to know about XML and XML technologies.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Too high level and biased
    I have never disliked a technical book more than this one. The table of contents looks great - lots of coverage of everything having to do with XML. The content though, is very disappointing. For the most part, every topic is covered at a very high level and the author's biases are very generously woven throughout. I found several cases of overstatements and omissions of accurate information. (Perhaps it is already out of date?)

    This book might be good for someone trying to get a high level view of all that XML is capable of infiltrating. For anyone that wants any real technical content, this will be a big disappointment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent explanatory text
    I read the entire book and some parts of it twice. It is perhaps the most organized book that I have ever read. It starts simple and moves to the complex. It is not a programmer's cookbook. It is an explanatory text and that is all that it claims to be. If you know little of XML this is an excellent place to start. If you think you know a lot about XML you will probably find much that you did not know in its 1200 pages.

    If you want to immediately start writing code that uses XML, then you need another book. This book has many good examples of code fragments designed to teach specific concepts. It does not try to build complete applications. It does have a section to refer you to other books that do lead you through complete projects. The author even maintains a web site listing "All the XML Books in Print" at http://www.xmlbooks.com.

    Any review takes on much from the perspective of the reviewer. I am not connected with the author or the publisher or anyone else connected with this book. I am an amateur programmer who writes educational software as a hobby. My real job is as mayor of a city. Although I have marked up student responses and stored XML segments in a relational database, I have never used the real power of XML. From this book and the more code-oriented books that I have ordered (from the author's recommended list) I think I will soon be able to use XML even for my simple uses.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Unique resource, with issues
    The fifth edition of the XML Handbook is an interesting beast all in
    itself. It's huge. The size of no other 'handbook' I have ever read,
    weighing in at 1200 pages. My guess is that this book has grown from
    edition to edition and has become the beast we see now. Starting with
    the negative:

    * The organization of the book needs work. The chapters are in an
    almost random order. For example, the chapter that describes XML at an
    introductory level is number 51, which is almost at the back of the
    book.

    * The organization of each chapter needs to be normalized into a format
    that would ensure that each possesses valuable information. This book
    is somewhat similar to the classic Design Patterns book in that it
    covers a wide variety of topics. Having a chapter format that readers
    can follow will make it easier to use the book as a reference work.

    * The graphics are inconsistent at best. Some are horrible in quality.
    Others are too large. I wouldn't have bought the book if I were
    flipping through it at the store. The quality of the graphics, which
    seem to be largely borrowed company graphics, is too inconsistent.

    * The chapters are very short. There are 69 chapters in a 1200 page
    book. You do the math. The chapter on XSL:FO, for example, is six pages
    long. Barely enough text to introduce the topic, let alone explain it.

    * The book is not self-referential. For example, the topic of vector
    versus bitmap graphics is covered twice. And the chapter on acronyms
    simply lists their definitions without pointing the reader back into
    the book for more information about where those acronyms are explained
    in more detail. My guess is that this is an outgrowth of the organic
    development of the book.

    All that being said, I am still giving the book a good rating because I
    believe that it is a unique resource in the XML world. It's chapters
    cover a variety of topics so sweeping that it provides a high level
    overview of the entire map of XML development. Chapter 66, which
    provides an overview of all of the different MLs is very good. Other
    chapters, such as the RDF chapter (36) are also a very good
    introduction. The breadth of the coverage is what makes this book
    unique. All of the drill-down technology specifics are covered better
    in other books.

    Is it worth buying? Tough to say. I think for someone tasked with a
    high-level understanding of XML it is a valuable resource because it
    provides an excellent tree-top perspective of the XML landscape. For
    someone who is thick in the implementation of XML standards, it's
    probably not worth it.

    What the book really needs is a thorough development editing pass to
    reorganize the book, normalize the chapters, remove redundant content,
    and to fix the problems with the illustrations and the text. ... Read more

    Book Description

    The Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) is a revolutionary innovation designed to improve the productivity and competitiveness of all computers.It greatly facilitates the sharing of data and the integration of diverse types of software, yielding a new era of efficiency and flexibility.This guide to SGML is written by the inventor of the language.In it he gives his thoughts on each clause of the widely adopted international standard, and explains every detail for the benefit of computer users.The handbook also includes the up-to-date amended full text of ISO 8879, extensively annotated, cross-referenced and indexed, along with additional tutorial and reference material. The book will be invaluable for all those involved in the development of SGML applications and the implementation of SGML systems. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Necessary for SGML; useless for XML
    This book is, regrettably, the one authoritative book on the SGML standard. Given how broad and confusing the SGML standard is, it's not surprising that this book on it is equally opaque -- this is, in my experience, the worst-written technical book I've ever seen that is not actually inaccurate. But if you're doing serious SGML development, you have no choice but to get this book and to spent forever trying to make sense of it.

    But beware: if you're doing just XML, and if you think "well, since XML is a form of SGML, I might as well get the SGML standard", don't do it! XML is all you need to know, then just look at the XML standard, at ...and maybe also get a book specifically about XML. I happen to like Eckstein and Casabianca's /XML Pocket Reference/, partly because it's less than one-tenth the price of the SGML standard, and a hundred times more useful!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Required SGML Reading IF
    you are planning on really getting into the world of SGML. If you are a beginner, or just playing with SGML, this book isn't for you. The book does contain the entire ISO 8879 standard and is extensively cross referenced. After five years using it, I still find it easy to get lost in the references. If you want the final, definative word from the MAN who wrote the standard, this is it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Turgid, obscure, confusing; but essential for advanced SGML.
    This is a particularly badly written book on a particularly badly designed and written standard, SGML.

    However, SGML is so far the only reasonably universal and standard way of marking up text, and this is the only comprehensive treatment of it, including all the peculiar little bits that you probably should never use. The book includes the full text of the ISO standard as well as cross-references and annotation.

    The book, like the standard, uses terminology and notation which are not standard in the rest of computer science. The tutorial material is weak. The book design is ugly and hard to read.

    Yet SGML, bad as it is, is an important and useful standard, and this is a comprehensive reference for it. Let us hope that both the standard and the book will be improved radically in the future.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The official ISO standard.
    This is not the first book you should read about SGML, but if you are going to do any serious development in SGML, you need this on your bookshelf. It contains the entire text of the ISO standard, plus Goldfarb's annotations ... Read more

    Learning the basics of the XML language is one thing; understanding howit really can be used in today's commercial applications is quite another. Thethird edition of The XML Handbook compiles the XML strategies of over twodozen companies, to provide a unique look at how XML is being used right now.

    Coauthored by Charles F. Goldfarb, the author of SGML--the parent markupspecification of XML--this book comprises two parts. In the first, the XMLlanguage is explained in the broader context of SGML, and markup in general. Thereal heart of the book, however, is in part two. This much larger section is acollection of topical expositions on XML that are sponsored by companies such asSun, IBM, Adobe, and Microsoft--giving the reader a look at a broad spectrum ofXML strategies and uses.

    The introductory chapters are written superbly from the perspective of true XMLexperts who understand its full context. For example, the book describes MOM andPOP--message-oriented-middleware and presentation-oriented-publishing--the twoseemingly opposite extremes of application types that are served by XML.

    In the remaining bulk of the text, readers are treated to industry briefings onreal-world XML application designs, ranging from online auctions to EDI and fromhealth care applications to content management. Each sponsored chapter capturesthe flavor of the company's viewpoint of XML, and is well documented withdiagrams and code examples where appropriate. Collectively, they stand as anunprecedented snapshot of real-world XML expertise. --Stephen W. Plain

    2-0 out of 5 stars Includes 350 pages of advertiser essays
    I kept reading more of the book to see if it would get better. Unfortunately, it did not.

    Good points:
    --Part 1 offers a concise introduction to XML.
    --Part 5 offers a good, although wordy, treatment of XML definitions and usage.

    Bad Points:
    --Three sections (almost 350 pages) of superficial "case studies" (ads) sandwiched between Parts 1 and 5.
    -- Only in Chapter 33 is the Spec Reference Structure explained -- after over 400 pages of examples using this format
    -- Poor organization inhibits utility. The book is simply not structured in a logical manner which makes it difficult to understand a logical system like XML.

    5-0 out of 5 stars As good as XML
    A very measured book, experienced people behind. Great. Are you one of those guys that takes seriously computer technology?, then oh!, get outta here... ;)

    Yes, this could damage your circuits. It's a very normal and so uncommon book, it reflect's perfectly what XML is, no more, no less, it has some reference chapters very interesting reading/feedbacking, good letter size, slightly complex (as XML...no more haha!)....

    .... and slightly quiet, with a lot of gold dust no worth reading more than up to you are at the point of saying this is what they think of XML, and I have personal my POV. Sure is not complex in a way that makes you feel XMLtized, but perhaps interested, some way...

    I'm sure you have a HTML book or a javascript reference at home bigger than this. Nowadays we are supposed to be more mature....

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not really a Handbook
    A few years ago, I bought Dr Goldfarb's great "SGML Handbook". I thought "The XML Handbook" would be something similar.

    The book contains, roughly, 100 pages of introduction to XML; 250 pages of tutorials on XML and its subcultures; and almost 600 pages of corporate presentations, of varying quality, on various aspects of XML application and implementation.

    The introduction and tutorials, although good, didn't have the depth I was looking for.

    The corporate bit addresses a very broad range of interesting issues, with varying levels of detail, but never enough to "solve the problem".

    So for me, the signal-to-noise ratio was pretty low.

    Let me give an example of a major gap in the book's coverage: I had hoped to gain much more insight into the relative merits of using attributes as against using element content; but I finished the book no wiser than when I started (other than having seen some examples where I disagreed with the approach taken).

    The CD-ROMs didn't add much value, either: the web has moved on very rapidly.

    To add to my disappointment, the production of the book is not of a high standard.

    - The rendering of low-level headings leaves a lot to be desired (Ex: I looked at 33.2.2.6.4 on page 480 for fully 30 seconds before understanding that it was a heading). So does that of block quotes, which appear to run on to the following paragraph.

    - Many footnotes on a left-hand page with callouts on the previous page make reading a chore (Ex: fn #2 on pp 59 and 60). There is a general disdain for any attempt to keep figures on the same left-right page pair as their references.

    - It might have been less irritating, too, to use a single numbering space for all Figures, Examples, Tables, and Spec Excerpts, rather than obliging the reader to work out the sometimes subtle difference between "Example 8-1" and "Figure 8-1".

    This book, I understand from the Preface, was itself prepared using XML. Unfortunately, good markup for publishing is of little use without excellent rendering. I got a strong impression of unseemly haste to get the book out before getting the rendering up to scratch. So readability was badly crippled (unlike The SGML Handbook).

    One last damn. So far, I've read the book just once. Although I'm kind to books, the cover is already dog-eared and de-laminating. It probably doesn't matter, because, in contrast to "The SGML Handbook", reading this book a second time won't add anything. That's another reason I think it wrong to call it a Handbook.

    More in sorrow than in anger, then: two stars for Dr. Goldfarb, zero for Prentice-Hall.

    1-0 out of 5 stars XML = eXtensive Marketing Leads...
    ...at least that is what the publisher was trying to provide the companies...oops...I mean authors with.

    I don't mind the format except that it was written by the marketing departments, and not the people who actually do the work. As a technician I found it useless, insulting, and full of wishy-washy statements (no I can't give you examples because I threw the book away a long time ago). However, they are the kind of statements I'm constantly fighting over today (with our company's executives) like "seamless integration." What does that mean? To my company execs it means no more pain. No more money to be spent. We do XML right? Then why can't we import that document format today? What do you mean we can only handle certain XML standards - "the whole company thinks we do XML, and your telling me we don't!"

    This book is part of the "do XML B2B and get rich quick" fiasco of 2000.
