OK, then I feel that I can plug one of my own projects:
There is a nice Windows installer for Python 2.0.x to
and there are some examples:
Plus I am always willing to help.
Without knowing your problem domain, it is hard to say how you should
approach the problem. XSLT might be a good fit but it is another
language that you will have to learn (thought it may be worth learning
for other reasons).
I wouldn't worry about SAX/DOM/XSLT performance until you encounter an
actual problem. SAX is nice for some problems, but unless your problem
is fairly simple, you will have to do a lot of state management
As someone who knows XSLT, I'd probably approach the problem by getting
my XSLT right on the command line (FYI, Pyana has a command line
interface) and then worry about integrating it into my Python workflow.
There are a number of tools out there to help you write XSLT scripts.
