try this?

# vim: set fencoding=utf-8:
import urllib
import xml.sax as sax, xml.sax.handler as handler

f = urllib.urlopen("http://www.google.de/ig/api?weather=Muenchen")
xml = f.read()
xml = xml.decode("cp1252")
f.close()

class my_handler(handler.ContentHandler):
    def startElement(self, name, attrs):
        print "begin:", name, attrs

    def endElement(self, name):
        print "end:", name

sax.parseString(xml, my_handler())
