    Some later sections of the book cover advanced topics such as
    relational databases, scripting with various programming languages, and
    XML.  These chapters don't teach relational databases, programming, or
    XML, they simply show you how to use these technologies with Zope.

       This should be "won't teach you how to use relational databases, program, ..." etc. If you insist on being
       ugly about it, you could say "don't teach relational database management techniques" etc., but there's no
       reason to insist on being ugly. JEL

       This whole book bursts with lack and/or confusion of clearly defined concepts and categories. A computer wont
       be programmed by handwaving and appeals to intuition. A computer is *not* something to put magic spells.
       Micro$oft in this respect did more than i can describe.
       Also: If you want precise infos, goto the Appendices, read the sources,
       follow the mailing lists. What you get here is barely scratching the surface of zope.
