Oh, there are lots available nowadays, Chris. There's SGML for Dummies, and
a whole series of XML books from Prentice-Hall PTR. I have two books from
that series, *XML by Example* and *Structuring XML Documents*. Both good
and, like the other books, written by XML authorities. This makes them
authoritative, albeit frequently pedantic. I also have *XML, a Primer*,
which is easier to read, but less comprehensive. Web magazines are
increasingly having XML features. And check out http://www.w3c.org for lots
of XML stuff. It's W3C at its stuffy best, but it's pretty complete.
