Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed.
(for what it's worth, parse() seems to return a "plain" ElementTree
object but document_fromstring() gave me a special html object with
the rewrite_links() method. I think, but I didn't try it, that
html_doc = lxml.html.parse(b"http://.../xyz.html")
lxml.html.rewrite_links(html_doc, ... )
would work too.)
