>>> node.firstChild.childNodes[0].nodeValue
u'one '
>>> node.firstChild.childNodes[1].nodeValue
u'&'
>>> node.firstChild.childNodes[2].nodeValue
u'two'
>>> node.normalize()
>>> node.firstChild.childNodes[0].nodeValue
u'one &two'

In PyXML 0.8.1, in this case, you will already get normalized data right
after parsing.
