This second edition of the bestselling Learning XML provides web developers with a concise but grounded understanding of XML (the Extensible Markup Language) and its potential-- not just a whirlwind tour of XML.The author explains the important and relevant XML technologies and their capabilities clearly and succinctly with plenty of real-life projects and useful examples. He outlines the elements of markup--demystifying concepts such as attributes, entities, and namespaces--and provides enough depth and examples to get started. Learning XML is a reliable source for anyone who needs to know XML, but doesn't want to waste time wading through hundreds of web sites or 800 pages of bloated text.For writers producing XML documents, this book clarifies files and the process of creating them with the appropriate structure and format. Designers will learn what parts of XML are most helpful to their team and will get started on creating Document Type Definitions. For programmers, the book makes syntax and structures clear. Learning XML also discusses the stylesheets needed for viewing documents in the next generation of browsers, databases, and other devices.Learning XML illustrates the core XML concepts and language syntax, in addition to important related tools such as the CSS and XSL styling languages and the XLink and XPointer specifications for creating rich link structures. It includes information about three schema languages for validation: W3C Schema, Schematron, and RELAX-NG, which are gaining widespread support from people who need to validate documents but aren't satisfied with DTDs. Also new in this edition is a chapter on XSL-FO, a powerful formatting language for XML. If you need to wade through the acronym soup of XML and start to really use this powerful tool, Learning XML, will give you the roadmap you need.

XML bedeutet eine neue Generation von Auszeichnungssprachen für das Internet. Doch anders als HTML kümmert sich die Extensible Markup Language in erster Linie nicht um den grafischen Auftritt Ihrer Webseiten. Stattdessen wird Ihnen eine mächtige und doch einfache Sprache für den Austausch von Daten an die Hand gegeben. Mit Hilfe von XML können Sie Datenbanken und anderen Anwendungen den Zugriff auf Ihre Informationen ermöglichen. XML wird so zur Sprache der Schnittstellen des Netzes, eine unverzichtbare Sprache in der Zeit der dynamischen Webseiten, der automatischen Suchroboter und einer großen Vielfalt der Client-Hartware.

XSLT is a powerful language for transforming XML documents into something else. That something else can be an HTML document, another XML document, a Portable Document Format (PDF) file, a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file, a Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) file, Java code, or a number of other things. You write an XSLT stylesheet to define the rules for transforming an XML document, and the XSLT processor does the work. As useful as XSLT is, its peculiar characteristics make it a difficult language in which to get started. In fact, newcomers are often a little dazed on first contact. Learning XSLT offers a hands-on introduction to help them get up to speed with XSLT quickly. The book will help web developers and designers understand this powerful but often mystifying template-driven and functional-styled language, getting them over the many differences between XSLT and the more conventional programming languages. Learning XSLT moves smoothly from the simple to complex, illustrating all aspects of XSLT 1.0 through step-by-step examples that you'll practice as you work through the book. Thorough in its coverage of the language, the book makes few assumptions about what you may already know. You'll learn about XSLT's template-based syntax, how XSLT templates work with each other, and gain an understanding of XSLT variables. Learning XSLT also explains how the XML Path Language (XPath) is used by XSLT and provides a glimpse of what the future holds for XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0. The ability to transform one XML vocabulary to another is fundamental to exploiting the power of XML. Learning XSLT is a carefully paced, example-rich introduction to XSLT that will have you understanding and using XSLT on your own in no time.

In den vergangenen Jahren wurden sowohl in Hochschulen als auch im betrieblichen Umfeld zahlreiche E-Learning-Angebote eingefuhrt. In vielen Fallen war hierbei eine qualitative Ver-besserung des Lehrangebots eines der wesentlichen Ziele. Aus diesem Grund und auch im Hinblick auf die hohen Entwicklungskosten sind Aussagen zur Qualitat von E-Learning-Angeboten von besonderer Bedeutung. Bisherige Ansatze hierzu nahern sich dem Thema oft auf klassische Weise, indem etwa entstandene E-Learning-Angebote basierend auf Befragun-gen der Nutzerinnen und Nutzer evaluiert werden. In dieser Arbeit wird ein Ansatz dafur vorgestellt, das Qualitatsmanagement fur E-Learning-Angebote mit Hilfe so genannter Qualitatsinformationssysteme systematisch zu unterstutzen. Derartige Informationssysteme verarbeiten qualitatsrelevante Daten und gene-rieren aus ihnen Informationen uber die Qualitat des jeweils betrachteten Gegenstands. Ei-nes der zentralen Ziele der Arbeit ist es, die in Qualitatsinformationssystemen fur E-Learning-Anwendungen benotigten Daten in standardisierter Form zu erheben. In diesem Zusammenhang wird unter anderem das Sharable Content Object Reference Model" (SCORM) verwendet.
