As a pertinent aside here, I learned most of what I know about X from
Niall Mansfield's book The Joy of X (Addison Wesley, 1993). Great
overview, lots of good technical figures. Not an implementation guide,
by any means, but it made the X system quite clear to me, even though I
don't use it much. It's 15 years old now, but the basics of X haven't
changed, and copies can still be found on the used book sites online,
cheap. (~$3 US plus shipping.)
