Hmm.  I looked back and saw a message from you on 6/3 with no responses.  I 
apologize.  I was mobilizing for a conference then.

I'll go back and see what I can do.

Xml.com calls it "charming python," but so far it has proved about as charming as a broken car. I keep downloading the newest versions of the libraries, building them and instaling them and keep getting errors. I haven't gotten Sax or 4xslt to work.

Yes.  I learned how frustrating the current state of things is for new users 
from the experience of a recent newcomer from Java/XML.

All I can say is that I personally have pledged to put work into makign things 
better: in terms of documentation and code, as time allows.  It is a pretty 
high priority for me now.

If you're a bit patient with PyXML.  I think we'll not continue to disappoint you.  And you are helping make things better by offering specific complaints.
