Parsing Problems

Hi,

     I have just started learning python.I need to parse an XML file
and present the contents in a particular format.The format is called
as "ini" file.I have written some code.A section of the format needs
the data to be present in format as given below:

[Services]
supported=0x10,0x1A,0x3B,0x20,0x27,0x28,0x34,0x36,0x3E,0xA2,0xA5,0x2D,
0x22,0xA9,0x04,0xAA,0xAE

My code for this section parses the xml file and gives :
[Services]
Supported=['0x3e', '0x28', '0x3b', '0x22', '0x20', '0x27', '0xaa',
'0x10', '0xae', '0x34', '0x36', '0x2d', '0xa9', '0xa5', '0x4', '0xa2',
'0x1a']

                {forget the numericals matching}.As you can see there
are single quotes around numericals ,which is not desired .I think the
problem lies in me using a list for storing and later printing out
values.I have attached few lines of code,not sure how clear it can be
to you:

                        for l in range(0,len(ser_par),
1):
                            if
ser_par[l].getAttribute('Semantics')==u'serviceId':
                                if
tag_exists(ser_par[l].childNodes,'VALUE'):
                                    val =
ser_par[l].getElementsByTagName('VALUE')
                                    value =
str(val[0].getAttribute('value'))
                                    valu = hex(int(value))
                                    rval.append(valu)
                                    ser_par_num = ser_par_num + 1
                    prim_num = prim_num + 1

                service_num = service_num + 1
        variant_num = variant_num + 1
    ser = list(set(rval))

print "\n[Services]"
    print "Supported="+str(ser)

              How can i get rid of those single quotes.

                                                     Thanking you
