What are you using PyXML for? It is not a part of the standard library.

If you require XML Parsing, the elementtree out there is a pretty good
parsing library and its included by default in Python 2.5.


And for HTML and general XML parsing, Beautiful Soup library which is
a separate package seems an easy to use and preferred one as well.


If any specific usage/questions with PyXML, just pose it and lets try
to find a way out.
