As with our other editions of our electronically distributed training 
material, the purchase of any edition of any electronic publication 
entitles the customer to all future editions of the same material at no 
charge.  Future editions will continue to track changes in the 
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 
on 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.
