It looks as if I should have read the whole thread before posting.
Martin's been a great help, but I still have a couple of observations.

I personally think the Python/Unicode docs are pretty good, but Unicode
is *hard*. No getting around that.

I wouldn't use "unicode" as a variable name if I were you, since it's a
built-in in Python 2.2 and up.
unicode_tag = doc.createElement( u'unicode' )
unicode_tag = doc.createElement( 'unicode' )
Remember that XML element and attribute names are also (a subset of)
Unicode, even though they're a smaller subset than that of character
