    I've been subscribed to Safari for about a month and really like it so far. The only bad part is having to be at a comuter to read.

    Safari is great! :)

    Although their library is not complete (they only have one of Richard Stevens' books online, for example), I've found most of the information I've needed so far.

    And yes, you can print; one section at a time. So forget about printing an entire book. It's not worth the effort :)

    Anyway, for $9.95 a month it's a bargain.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking here; once you've put a book on your shelf, you can read -all- of it...

    Anyway, I've made two screenshots of me searching my shelf for "docbook dtd". The first screenshot shows two books have matches; The "Learning XML" book has three matches, and the "XSLT" book has only one.

    The second screenshot shows the third match from the "Learning XML" book. The search engine has highlighted my search terms on the page in red.

    Does that answer your question? :)
