Date: Wed, 07 Jul 1999 07:57:25 -0400 From: "Simon St.Laurent" <email@example.com> To: XML-Dev Mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: ANNOUNCE: Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical
I'm happy to announce that Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical, is now available.
Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical provides a guide to XML with a sharp focus on scientific and technical applications of this new technology. In addition to XML itself, MathML, a core W3C standard that can be used in many fields, receives extended coverage. The second half of Inside XML DTDs: Scientific and Technical explores emerging XML standards and tools in a number of fields, including biology, chemistry, astronomy, library science, and meteorology. The conclusion explains what developers will need to do in order to create their own applications of XML, and provides a guide to integrating XML with current information architectures and practices.
Topics covered include:
How XML Enhances Information Exchange XML's Background XML Document Structures XML DTDs: Describing Document Content XML DTDs: Describing Document Structures Using XLink and XPointer to Connect Documents Supporting Standards for XML Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) MathML Implementations An Introduction to Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Dublin Core The Virtual Hyperglossary (VHGTM) Chemical Markup Language Markup for Biology: BioML and BSML Weather Observation Markup Format Markup for Astronomy: AML Markup for Instrument Control: AIML Graphics Markup Languages Building your Own Markup Language Creating Networked Applications Using Perl for XML Processing (with examples) Using Java for XML Processing Moving Beyond the Foundations
For some reason, the cover just says "Inside XML DTDs", but Amazon has it right. (Or close - they moved the colon.) In any case, the ISBN is 0-07-134621-X, list price is $49.99, and it's becoming available at electronic bookstores right now. It should hit the shelves of your local bookstore soon.
