[XML-SIG] Converting HTML to XML, advise wanted

I have to do a (partial) translation of HTML to an XML-based format (RealText, 
to be specific), and I'm a bit uncertain as to how to proceed. Half a year ago 
I would have just used htmllib.py to parse the html and used a formatter.py 
based class to generate the XML, but nowadays I sort of have the feeling that 
a DOM based approach might be a better path. But, as I've only glanced at the 
DOM stuff on this list I'm not 100% convinced that this is indeed the best way 
to go. It seems PyDOM contains all the needed stuff, but again I'm not 
completely sure of this.

Does anyone have any insights to share?
