Oh, just that first simple python-xml thing in my previous message.

Ah, ok, I understand.  Now I realise that old examples can be bad, for
newcomers; they just add the extra bit of confusement that's not
helpful when you're trying to enter a new project.  Because I found
several ways of parsing html, I figured that there were `competing'
projects and really didn't know where to start, which one to use.

(py)expat is just for parsing and doing your own stuff.  Minidom is a
real small thing for small jobs with cleanish xml.  Dom full flexed
and done by 4dom, and sax is just, well, sax.
