I'd second Rick's list, even agreeing with his
1-2-3 rankings. The Cover Pages used to be my
#1, but the volume there has become so great
that it's sometimes hard to separate good hard
red winter wheat from chaff.
I can suggest one addition for general sites:
This site is similar to xml.com in coverage, but
from a UK perspective (i think it is connnected
with Wrox Press, though i don't know their exact
relationship). There seems to be some bias toward
Microsoft-related practical solutions, but i can't
hold this against them (too much ;-).
And a vendor site missing from the list:
As a grassroots open source kinda developer, i'm
not a huge fan of Oracle, but there is no denying
that they are an early and aggressive supporter
of XML. In fact, as much as i appreciate the great
impact of The Cover Pages, i would argue that the
enthusiasm for XML is also in large part due to
the support of Oracle and Microsoft (and yes, i
do hate myself for promoting those twins... ;-).
P.S. I suppose i might have some personal bias:
I've worked on four of Wrox's XML books, but i
still like and use O'Reilly's xml.com site.
