You should use an HTML generator tool rather than a generic XML tool like
xml.dom.minidom. You need something that knows that the <script> tag
contains CDATA content in HTML, and that can serialise in an HTML aware way
(self-closing tags, etc.).
Check the Python Wiki or PyPI, they have tons of HTML generators.
