[XML-SIG] Python and DOM

Since you are developing a GUI, you may want to look at the
implementation of XMLtreeview.py in wxPython. In the version that
I downloaded (a few months ago, might have changed since then), the
demo program included XMLtreeview under the "Cool Contribs" demos.
wxPython is at http://www.wxpython.org/
