New submission from Alexey Shamrin <shamrin at gmail.com>:

There are many libraries in Python stdlib [1]


Tutorial mentions xml.dom and xml.sax. [2]

In my experience xml.etree is the best library to quickly load some xml and mess with it. It would be nice to recommend people xml.etree in the tutorial [2] and in the beginning of section 19, "Structured Markup Processing Tools". [1]
