As for programming syntax error, the place where an html error is detected by the parser may well be one or more line(s) after the actual error: you should watch lines before #124.
Also, the traceback looks strange: it seems that ElementTree interprets a python UnboundLocalError for the variable 'tree' as being caused by an html error in source. ???
