Previous Wrox ASP and XML title was a strong seller. ASP.NET 2.0 and 75% spending growth on XML services implementation in 2005 will drive renewed development for ASP.NET 2.0 and XML that was not seen on ASP.NET 1.
.NET acceptance is growing, with over 1,000,000 current ASP.NET programmers and "version 1" skepticism is no longer an issue
XML is hugely useful in conjunction with ASP.NET. Developers can use it for displaying data from an infinite variety of sources (databases, PDF, Word, and Excel documents, etc) in their ASP.NET web sites
With many new built-in functions in ASP.NET 2.0, XML usage is one of the areas experienced developers will delve into deeper to increase their usefulness
