Format: Paperback
XSLT 2.0 Web Development" by Dmitry Kirsanov, teaches a system of transforming semantically structured content into browser-ready HTML, including the proper separation of content from presentation, structuring the content into "cleanly separated semantic layers", developing a XML vocabulary for each layer, validating the XML and content structure, using XSLT to transform the XML content to HTML, and integrating the transformation system with web development frameworks and development tools.
As described in the introduction, the author suggests readers should have a basic understanding of XML syntax and terms, as well as "know some XSLT and especially XPath". Before reading this book, this reviwer was comfortable reading, editing and creating XML documents, but I couldn't (and still can't) write an XML DTD. Also, the only idea I had about XSLT was that it's used to transform XML documents into HTML. That's it. With those basic introductory understandings, I had no problems following the well-structured and well-explained lessons throughout the book, as well as applying those lessons while developing a real-life web site.
This 406 page book consists of seven chapters containing plenty of well-organized and well-used text and diagrams, example code showing "all aspects of an XML-to-HTML transformation", and plenty of screenshots. The contents also include a discussion of the basic premises of XML, explanations and examples of XML source definitions including schema and regulations, a Schematron schema for document validation, XSLT extensions including new additions to XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.

This book has been a very interesting reading for me since it covers a lot of topics in a different way than usual. It's not a book for beginners, it does not teach you how to use XSLT from scratch neither teaches you how to build a web application if you have never done one. This book serve for mid-expert web application designer and builder in understanding the beauty,
and the need, to learn xml and xslt.
By reading this book you learn to appreciate the importance of xml and how you can effectively use it in your web application. The book requires a basic knowledge of xml and xslt, but if you have already use it, even not much,
you will learn that you cannot totally miss the knowledge of this important topic.
While reading this book my feeling has been to run on a store and
buy more dedicated books of all the topics that are discussed throughout this book. Definitely what most have impressed me are three different topics well covered on this book: Schematron, XSLT java extension and Cocoon. I feel more confident
and sure that I need to get e dapper understanding of these three topics, and this book gave me the right flavour for them. I recommend this book for both developers but most for designers that need to migrate from traditional web application
to a complete xml and xslt web applications.

The "XSLT 2.0" is in the title (but only as an adjective, the noun being "Web Development") because I use XSLT 2.0 idioms throughout - the book is filled with code examples that are only possible in 2.0. The book is not focused on XSLT 2.0 as such, it is focused on its practical use. I strived to present the right mix of theory and examples - the mix I would have enjoyed myself when I just started learning to use XSLT for web development.
