If you look in the XML Topic Guide section of the Python web site 
is a full tutorial on using SAX. This is a good starting point:


But frankly I'd strongly advise you to look at ElementTree if you are
parsing XML. Its much easier to use. The only time I'd use sax 
is if I was porting code from some other sax based solution.
