Julius,

You might want to take a look at Dave Cole's recently announced CSV parser:

    http://groups.google.com/groups?q=CSV&hl=en&group=comp.lang.python.*&safe=off&rnum=3&ic=1&selm=mailman.992813221.29993.clpa-moderators%40python.org

Use that for parsing, then restrict your code to generating XML.
