Heh. Writing _XML Elements of Style_ was easy, after two years on
XML-Dev. Haven't need to change much, either.
Unfortunately, I think you're losing track of the fact that 'best practices
stand on their own' for us XML-Dev folks, but not really for the rest of
the world. I genuinely hope there's a better-selling book that goes into
as much detail on the
validating/non-validating/namespace-aware/non-namespace aware parser issues
as XMLEOS (Amazon rank:111,042), but I haven't seen one yet. Most books
gloss over these issues, and the few that mention them don't tend to
(ma)linger on them.
I'll be giving a full day tutorial on them in May -
Might as well profit selling aspirin, when headaches abound.
