Are you asking: "What is PullDOM and how does it relate to SAX?" If so,
here are some references:


The point of PullDOM is that a person who is fairly familiar with XML and
Python should be able to get up and running in 10 minutes. Although it is
not as convenient as other APIs I have used (and developed) it should be
efficient enough and powerful enough for almost any application. More
convenient layers (particularly dispatchers) can be built on top and
compete for inclusion in 2.1 or whatever.

No, I'm talking about the module reference. It needs to document all of
our final decisions.
