I need to get some XML books for our shop.
No one here knows it, so basic is good.
We don't do much Java yet the more general the books are the better for us.

When I started, First I used "Step by Step XML by Michael Young"
from Microsoft press and then I used "XML by Example by Benoit Marchal".
Both books are for beginners and the second one except for the first three chapters(You can skip), goes to intermediate level. In about two weeks times I was able to write decent XML code with the help of these books.

Good Luck

O'Reilly has a Java and XML specific book. I also found their XML Pocket Reference to be very handy.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
