Where's the VB code?
At quick glance, I don't see any VB code. Will this be added for the non-C# developers?
Dan: I don't think it was out intent to provide VB code for this book. If we made that promise somewhere and I blew it, please point it out to me. I think our consensus was that the core of the code had little difference between VB and C# and that the VB reader would probably know the VB well enough to make the little changes required, letting us focus more on the ASP.NET and XML specifics. Thiru, if you remember this differently or have other thoughts, please jump in.

I would like to add that I have purchased many Wrox books on ASP.NET, as well as XML, XSL and VB 2005.
I was somewhat disapointed that ths book had no VB code. Nevertheless I will filter through the C#.
I recently purchased Profrossional ASP.NET 2.0, which gives both VB and C# with every example. They did it right. Maybe your next edition can have VB...you might sell more :)
I'm not purchasing this book, specifically because it does not have VB code. (Even though it looks like a very useful book.)
In my opinion, VB coders like me can't usually write or understand C#, while C# programmers can usually understand VB. So, I hope the author considers VB for future books, especially considering VB 2008's exclusive support for XML literals.
I think you should use Microsoft Book for Visual Basic and the codes provide in that really useful.... Thanks for sharing the post....
