I moved a working script from Ubuntu (Python 3.1.2) to Windows (Python 3.2.3) today.
Had to revise script. The tostring method returns a string on Linux (contradicts this issue), but bytes on Windows (as described in this issue)...
I used tostring with a single argument "tostring(theXml)"
Is there an explanation for this? I am not an advanced Python hacker...
Be careful when moving from one environment to another!
