You will need to become familiar with the actual XML Specs. Some are 
manditory for any XML competance, others are useless, many are in between. 
I'll let you decide which is which. You can hunt them down from

Be sure to read these web sites on a regular basis:


www.xml.com also has a really good "Annotated XML Spec" you should read.

If you're going to be using XML in an MSWindows / IE5 environment, you 
should download the most recent version of MSXML, and the acompanying 
documentation (I don't have the URL, but try http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml 

MSXML does have some proprietary stuff, but the most recent version supports 
the standards pretty well, and the documentation is good (but you can only 
read it in Windows ).

I know you asked for books. Read this stuff too, though.
