The Element type is a simple but flexible container object, designed
to store hierarchical data structures, such as simplified XML infosets,
in memory.  The ElementTree package provides a Python implementation
of this type, plus code to serialize element trees to and from XML files.

ElementTree 1.2.1 is 1.2 plus performance improvements that have been
backported from the 1.3 development version.  The new release is 20-30%
faster than 1.2, on many kinds of XML documents.

You can get the ElementTree toolkit from:


Brief documentation and some code samples (including an XML-RPC
unmarshaller in 16 lines) are available from:
