Crane Softwrights Ltd. is proud to announce the availability of over 
24 hours of interactive instructional audio/video covering every 
element, every attribute and every function of both XSLT and XPath, 
both versions 1.0 and 2.0.  This captures for use as a self-paced 
training tool our five-day hands-on class that we deliver publicly 
and privately worldwide.

In a time of tightening training and travel budgets we see this as a 
viable and cost-effective alternative to the cost and time taken to 
attend our publicly-subscribed or our private on-site training:  the 
student can take as long or as short as they need to go through the 
material on their own schedule.

These English-language lessons are hyperlinked through thematic 
modules and lessons down to the individual slide level for all 441 
slides.  Accompanying PDF handouts and exercises are downloaded from 
Crane's web site.  To ensure product operation of the audio/visual 
Flash lesson files, a test one-minute video can be downloaded from 
Crane's web site to exercise the delivery format on any platform 
before purchasing the non-refundable product.  We have successfully 
run these HTML and lesson files on Windows and Mac platforms, as well 
as a configuration of Linux with Totem.

For a limited time, worldwide express shipping for the video DVD-ROM 
media is included in the price.  On-demand fulfillment is shipped 
from California within two business days of the order (typically only one).

Licenses are available for private online real-time delivery over an 
intranet for staff.

Past students of Crane's instructor-led training will recognize the 
presentation format that now includes the audio-visual component in 
the top-right corner of the screen of slide content.  The links on 
the left allow the user to jump to or replay any slide in the lesson.

Please follow the link below to our web site, and click on "Training 
videos" in the right margin to download the test video.  There are 
also links to the online store with pricing information and to 
YouTube videos of the introduction/overview of the entire class and a 
sample lesson (regarding <xsl:number/>).  While the YouTube videos 
are not hyperlinked as in the test video and actual lessons, you can 
see the progress of the lesson as the entire page is captured on 
YouTube.  The introduction overviews what is covered in every module 
of the class.
