This book is a comprehensive reference for using XML technologies with ASP .NET for structured development of websites. It’s divided into two sections: the first explains the use of XML at the browserand the second explains its usage along with
ASP.NET and databases on the server side (Web server and database server).

The first section discusses XML, XSLT and XML tools with Visual Studio .NET and .NET SDK. XML schemas and their usage with .NET are dealt with in depth.

Server, it also discusses advanced XML features provided by the SQLXML 3.0 service pack for SQL Server.
