The XML Companion
In 1998, Addison Wesley published The XML Companion. This first edition covered much the same ground as the earlier SGML book, though the fact that the XML standard is simpler than the SGML standard meant that more space was made available to cover side-topics, including related standards.
This book was later translated into Polish and into Hungarian.
