a nice sql elearning site

I though the content and tone of this site was brilliant.
http://sqlzoo.net/
You can pick your database engine, you're working with interesting data (the cia world factbook and the imdb), and the problems start trivial and get interesting. Plus, it sets a friendly tone with the text. e.g: "That is definitely enough. Students should, under no circumstances look at the next tutorial, concerning outer joins. "
Anyone else have any examples of good, interactive elearning sites for programmers?

I also found this "Gentle Introduction to XML"
http://www.dcs.napier.ac.uk/~andrew/xml/
linked to from the sqlzoo site (looks like it's by the same guy).
I haven't tried it yet, but it looks quite detailed.
