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!
