The Tenth Edition of our "Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath" 
was published last month:

   Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath
   (XSL Transformations and the XML Path Language)
   Tenth Edition - 2001-12-06 - ISBN 1-894049-08-X
   Copyright (c) 2001 Crane Softwrights Ltd.

There is a free 140 page preview that can be downloaded from the "Book 
Sales" link at the top of our home page.

We have an accessible rendition now of each of our books since we updated 
our XML-based publishing environment.  This rendition is geared to screen 
readers for unsighted users.  A free preview of the accessible rendition is 
also available.  The other formats are PDF in both US-letter and A4 page sizes.

Purchasing any edition grants you perpetual access to all future editions 
at no charge (some of our early customers have had 9 free books since the 
first edition).  We plan to update this book to XPath and XSLT 2.0 when 
they are finalized, so all existing customers will end up with brand new 
books at no charge.

For those who prefer static paper books instead of upgradable PDF books, 
the Ninth Edition of the book is now on bookshelves.  Since we authored the 
book in XML we just used XSLFO to produce the camera-ready images to send 
to the publisher (we think it is the first paper commercially-sold book 
produced from end to end with XML-related technologies):

   Definitive XSLT and XPath
   First Edition - 2001-12-10 - ISBN 0-13-065196-6
   Copyright (c) 2002 Crane Softwrights Ltd.
   Prentice Hall PTR

Links to information on the paper book and a free PDF chapter for review 
can also be found on our web site through the same "book sales" link.

I hope this helps.
