XML using standard Python modules

I'm trying to get to grips with XML using Python.

A simple app to start with, it will read a plain text file containing
some data, convert it to XML and write an XML file.

Later that file will be used as a random-access data source.

Where do I start?

I'm reading this: http://py-howto.sourceforge.net/xml-howto/SAX.html
at the moment. Is it up-to-date?

There seems to be half a dozen XML modules. Which is the right one for
this type of application? XML.SAX?

Thanks for any pointers.
