[XML-SIG] DOM code update
Mon, 5 Oct 1998 22:08:49 -0400
Fred Drake tried out the DOM code and pointed out various problems.
Monday evening's activity, now checked into CVS:
Reindented the body of the Node class.
Renamed the .index method to _index
Added some more __repr__ methods.
Fix the insertBefore(), appendChild(), and replaceChild() method to delete
the node being added when it's already present in the tree.
Rename the __str__() functions to toxml(); this will be how you convert
a DOM tree or subtree to XML. (The method name may still change.)
Fixed getElementsByTagName(); it actually works now.
Fixed typo in ProcessingInstruction.toxml(); PIs end with ?>
Implemented normalize() and splitText().
Delete a Linux binary in the expat/ tree which messed up building on Solaris.
Deleted the top-level Makefile from CVS; Makefile.pre.in should build it.

As always, I'll leave it to a volunteer to experiment with this.
