<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; does this fail: 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &nbsp; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; from xml.dom.ext.reader.Sax2 import FromXml 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; doc = FromXml("<MYDOC id=123>text here</MYDOC>") 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; elem = doc.documentElement 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; attr = elem.getAttribute("id") 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Try this: 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;attr = elem.getAttributeNS('','id')
