Implementing XML-RPC clients and servers

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about XML-RPC:

"XML-RPC is a protocol for remote procedure calls that is built upon the XML format. Method calls are packaged up by the client as an XML request sent via HTTP to the server whereupon action is taken and a response is packaged up and returned in the same way. This article demonstrates how elegantly F# programs can handle XML data using combinators and describes how a complete client-server pair using XML-RPC can be designed and built from scratch using only a small amount of library code and the .NET framework..."

This is not related to this post, but curious to see if the F# for scientist book, is it sutiable for a F# new comer like to learn F# while learning algorithms and implementation or is it meant for experienced users.

The F# for Scientists book is meant for absolute beginners with a technical background: it assumes no knowledge of programming at all, let alone functional programming.
