XML books - exploring XML

Books on XML
This book section is not meant to be comprehensive, it only reflects titles that I personally found useful. This technology moves so fast that most books are out of date by the time the ink has dried, but a few books still add value by painting the big picture or explaining the rationale of things, that rather get augmented than superceded. And there are always new books in the pipeline, so check back frequently.
