A really good book on XML Schema. This is the first book I read on XML Schema and I understand Schema's much better now. The book describes the Schema constructs with relatively simple examples. The examples illustrate the section being discussed and explain the relevance of the various features.

The only odd thing was that some of the explanations were deferred to later chapters, which I personally, see as a hindrance to the flow of the topic. Except for this one little oversight, I think the overall presentation is very well written.

My review is based on the first ten chapters and at this time I am not able to comment on the advanced features covered in the book.

This book helped me answer some questions in the Javaranch XML forum.
