The standard Python install includes a simple DOM implementation in the 
xml.dom packages. PyXML adds more capabilities.

If you are just starting and don't specifically require DOM, you might 
want to consider something else. Many people (including me) prefer to 
use a more Pythonic XML processing package. ElementTree is very popular 
and is included in the standard library as of Python 2.5 but there are 
many others as well.
