This is another bug fixed in 4DOM CVS:

     from xml.dom import Document
     from xml.dom.ext.reader import PyExpat
     from xml.dom.ext import PrettyPrint
     reader = PyExpat.Reader()
     doc1 = reader.fromString("<foo a1='1' a2='2' a3='3'/>")
     original_node = doc1.documentElement
     PrettyPrint( original_node )
     doc2 = Document.Document( None )
     imported_node = doc2.importNode( original_node, deep=1 )


<foo a1='1' a2='2' a3='3'/>

We're wrapping up the 4Suite release, which will have the fix, then we'll 
check in to PyXML CVS to propagate the fix there.
