Crane Softwrights Ltd. is pleased to announce that all four of its
commercial PDF publications are now freely-downloadable based on a
"Try and Buy" covenant:

   Practical Formatting Using XSL-FO

   Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath

   Practical Universal Business Language Deployment

   Practical Code List Implementation in XML

The "Try and Buy" policy asks you to acknowledge that if you find the
book useful and want to keep using it, you will pay for a registered
copy. If you decide you are not going to use the book, please delete
it from your system. Please do not keep a copy around if you are not
going to pay for it.


Registered book owners (including all who have already bought our
books in the past) have free access to our book forums at
http://books.CraneSoftwrights.com where questions about the content
found in the books can be posted. Spam-avoidance procedures require
book owners to create a forum login account and immediately forward
the account name to me, otherwise the account may be inadvertently
deleted (dozens of spam accounts are created every day). We are
looking forward to this growing to be a useful resource for book
owners as well as for myself as I look for ways to improve each
publication based on the questions being asked.

Each of the above four books is the basis of handout material for our
four respective instructor-led training classes (of the same
names). I can travel to deliver the material or the material can be
licensed for delivery by other trainers:

   Practical Transformation Using XSLT and XPath

   Practical Formatting Using XSL-FO

   Practical Universal Business Language Deployment

   Practical Code List Implementation in XML

We have a long history of me teaching these materials around the world:


Please contact me off-list if you have any questions regarding our
books or our instructor-led training. In particular, if you are
willing to host a publicly-subscribed training class hiring me to
deliver to your audience (perhaps your own trainers in a
train-the-trainers scenario), then please let me know.

Thank you!
