What do you mean by "failed"? This sequence of operations
succeeds for me when followed by a call to newdoc.writexml(f)
where f is a file object open for writing. You're probably
making some minor mistake elsewhere, e.g. right after this
incomplete code snippet that you quote.
Please suppy a complete copy-and-paste of a simple interactive
interpreter session that you think is failing. Here is one
that is working just dandy:
