I see. Let me take back my earlier statement: XmlWriter is *not*
current, anymore, as it is a SAX1 application; we encourage users to
use SAX2 these days. The mostly-equivalent SAX2 class is
xml.sax.saxlib.XMLGenerator or xml.sax.saxlib.LexicalXMLGenerator
(in your case, you need the LexicalXMLGenerator).
That said, XmlWriter ought to work. Feel free to submit bug reports at
sf.net/projects/pyxml. If you can, patches would be even better.
In SAX2, this becomes
> # lw.handle_cdata("<b>das ist html<b>")

Right, that's a bug. In SAX2, it becomes
lw.characters("<b>das ist html<b>")
> # lw.comment("great",0,len("great"))
> # if you uncomment this, the comment won't show up (in the xml ;-)
That's a bug; it works in the LexicalXMLGenerator.
> # Is my function call wrong?
Your call is right. It is a bug, and works in the LexicalXMLGenerator.
Do you really need to output PIs and comments in your application, or
was that just for testing purposes?
