Jump right in?

Just finished my SCJD and I'm looking into XML. I really haven't had *any* experience with XML/XSLT/(insert your favorite related acronymn here) aside from playing with the deployment descriptors w/tomcat when learning JSP/servlets.
Is Professional XML a good starting point or should I take a look at a more basic book?
I'm currently not planning on the XML exam but if I enjoy what I learn I might consider it later down the line.

You are probably better off starting with "Beginning XML", and other beginners books and/or online references. See my FAQ, and search this forum for "books" or "beginner".
I agree. Here's the link:
