This book analyses the SJV& counties and statistically documents the basis of socio-economic conditions. It also examines the role of federal expenditures in the cities and counties of the SJV.

But by middle school, teachers adopt a more serious attitude. They demand more abstract thinking, with categories and evidence and five-paragraph essays. Even our social studies books lose sight of the basic fact that history is a series of engagements of people, with all the action and mystery of a great detective novel.

In recent years Extensible Markup Language (XML) has had a major impact on software development and data interchange and has begun to have a similar effect in technical communication. XML provides a platform-independent, vendor-neutral source language for publishing documentation of all kinds and in any output format. XML solutions have already been adopted by many technical publication departments, while others are poised to make the move to XML. Authoring tools, publishing tools and content management systems are providing support for XML languages, in particular Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA), one of the XML languages designed specifically for technical documentation. Increasingly, technical communicators therefore need to understand what XML has to offer and how it can be used in the various areas of technical communication. This book fills an important gap in the market by providing a broad introduction to XML and its role in technical communication. It describes the basics of XML syntax and terminology, the use of XML in technical communication and the advantages it can bring to the production of technical documentation of all types. It introduces the key XML languages that are used for technical documentation, both as documentation source formats and for transforming source documents to various output formats. The book will be invaluable to anyone who needs a fast introduction to XML and its role in technical communication, such as those whose organization is deploying an XML-based documentation solution, or freelancers who need to keep pace with technical trends. It caters for technical communicators of all levels of markup language experience, providing a comprehensive yet easy to read overview of the use of XML in technical communication, as well as references to more in-depth material.

Everything went out fine.

I was familiar with the book (ISTC is a quality stamp)
and the expectations were fulfilled.

This book is an excellent overview of how XML is used in technical communication - it really put things into perspective for me.

The book is very well written and organized, guiding the reader through the history of XML, through the key concepts of XML, and the XML markup languages that are relevant to the technical communication profession today. There's a great chapter on the options for authoring XML, and the chapter covering DITA is very useful for gaining an understanding of how powerful DITA is, and and how it makes reuse of content easier. Now I understand what all the fuss about DITA is about!

I really enjoyed the chapter about XML and localization too - we hear a lot about how XML can save money in localization projects - this chapter explains how. The glossary is particularly good too - I haven't seen anything similar elsewhere that provides such a comprehensive set of definitions.

Whether you're a novice, or have already worked with XML, you will find this book very valuable.

I came across this book recently through my studies at graduate school and not through any association at Oracle. My review is based solely on that experience.

"XML in Technical Communication" is an excellent source for anyone who wants to learn about XML and how it can be leveraged in the world of technical writing. An easy read that's well-written and organized, this book is especially useful and suited for writers who are new to XML. If you've never heard of DocBook or DITA, or if you have but want to learn more, this book is for you (for writers with some knowledge and experience with XML, this book may fill in many knowledge gaps, as it did for me). The book provides a detailed (but not too detailed) history of XML as well as a solid review of its technical underpinnings and current implementations. I've been working with XML in a technical writing capacity for over 10 years, and spent four of those years working with Arbortext Epic Editor and the DocBook DTD (both discussed in this book). Still, I had much to learn. Highly recommended.

The book was worth the long wait and search. I believe it would cater to beginers. It eases the big jigsaw by putting in perspective the various aspects of creation, storing and processing of XML and DITA. The parts on SVG was a bonus.
However, I do wish that the author had delved into some more technical details, with an extended scope. Tutorials would have been very helpful.
