I don't, with your example code (tested Python 2.2 and PyXML 0.8.3
variants). For me, the output file when just the normal toxml() is used
is the same as the input (non-preservable document-level white space
toprettyxml() does seem to insert extra newlines as well as indenting
white space, and puts in more space than is really necessary IMO. I
don't know if this can really be said to be 'wrong' though as prettiness
is in the eye of the beholder, not defined by any standard.
