When you mentioned your desire to create a more general and robust
implementation of SGMLParser, i thought, "It might be good to write
the lexical analyzer in C for speed, or even the whole parser as a

That's kind of what i had in mind when i mentioned nsgmls output.
But putting together these two ideas, why not a Python interface
to sgmls itself? James Clark has an API for SP, and as far as i
know the source code is freely available. Import that as a module,
and you have a super-fast, robust, well-tested SGML parser to play
with from your Python script. (The back-ends for various output
formats could then be Python scripts.)
Just a thought...
