sorry for my english
thanks again for your answer ;)


i did that ....

                o = open("output.txt","w")
                data = open(filename).read()
                o.write( re.sub('&(?!amp;|quot;|nbsp;|gt;|lt;|laquo;|
raquo;|copy;|reg;|bul;|rsquo;)', '&', data) )
                o.close()
                shutil.move
("output.txt",filename)
                xml = etree.parse(filename)
                xml = ET.parse(filename)

it's dirty but works
