Hi guys,

just found "hidden" in the "Schema change in Etree"-Thread the answer to 
my formatting question:

ElementTree doesn't have a way of formatting (pretty printing) XML 
files, so there can't be that many newline characters in the structure 
(they may be in the occur, though!). There's a pretty printing recipe on 
the effbot site that you can easily adapt to inject the newline 
characters you need.

The recipe works fine.
