    I haven't used this particular module, but everything i've used from sourceforge in the past has been quality (and free)

    Hi New… don't know if you've seen Mark Pilgrims Dive into Python; but I would definataly recommend it. Why? Well for one there is a chapter on working with XML from Python. As well as a bunch of other topics, though it's not exactly for those new to programming. Anyway give it a go:

    www.diveintopython.org

    Happy reading ,

    Mark.

    Not free, but you could invest in the book XML & Python from O'Reilly - it will covery everything you need to know, and more.

    David Mertz has written many excellent articles on both Python and XML, mostly for the IBM DeveloperWorks site. They are archived at http://gnosis.cx/publish/tech_index.html

    Thank you so much for the link http://gnosis.cx/publish/tech_index.html

    Guess I've found a treasure, because all these topics are exactly what I want. You don't know how happy I'm.
