Hi Fred,

How I can get the fix now?

I need to incorporate it in the current version of pyxml I installalled in my environment.
I tryed to access with CVS to the source code but without success. 

Is it possible to get the gz file of pyxml with the fix from somewhere?

Thanks!  I've added the patch to the pyexpat in Python's CVS, so this
fix will appear in Python 2.3.
