This revised Ninth Edition again contains all constructs of the W3C 
Recommendations for XSLT 1.0 and XPath 1.0 with additional text, examples, 
and new content based on feedback and requests for additions from existing 
customers.  It has been just over six months since the last edition.

As with our other editions of this XSLT training material, the purchase of 
any edition of this publication entitles the customer to all future 
editions of the same material at no charge.  Future editions will continue 
to track changes in these Recommendations, therefore, your one purchase 
(there are no continual fees) will always be up-to-date with these W3C 
technologies.  Also, you can influence how the material evolves by asking 
us to consider changes you'd like to see.

Information can be obtained from the link below to the "Book Sales" section 
the Crane web site (also the location of the free download preview excerpt).

We hope you find this useful and we look forward to your feedback.
