It is now even hard to find a whole book on xml these days. I was lucky to get 
one the other day, but only because it was a clearance sale of computer 

Now, it's a struggle to find even a whole book on xml. The only topic I saw 
recently was "HTML, CSS & XML" or something like that...

Doesn't mean all that much though.. It's hard to find a book on gearboxes or 
spark plugs - but most of us use them everyday without too many problems...
