Lars Marius Garshol's new book, Definitive XML Application Development, just
appeared at my local bookstore. I picked up a copy yesterday but have only
been able to glance at it. FYI, it has three chapters devoted to XSLT (190
pp.). The book looks very comprehensive and seems to take pains to describe
not only how to do XML processing in Python but also why you might choose
one technique over another. I'm not sure why Lars hasn't plugged the book
yet. ;-)
