In production terms, the publishers seem to have done an excellent job. XSLT and XPath are now back in one book, and although this is now over 1300 pages, the paper quality and binding are much better than the 3rd edition, and the book is no thicker or heavier than the 900-page XSLT volume of the 3rd edition. I know that many readers give the book heavy use and complain about it falling apart;
Those are good news. I saw myself returning to the 2nd edition many times, because it was so hard to find your way in the 3rd edition without running headers. Maybe the poor production of the 3rd edition made my move to XSLT 2.0 slower than necessary. So I hope to no longer worry about the loose pages of my 2nd edition.
