[XML-SIG] SAX Events to DOM Tree

I have a couple of questions :
I'm looking for some code which takes SAX Events and converts
them to a DOM Tree, the sax events don;t have a namespace decleration -
however I'm lost, from this page
(http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/topics/howto/node10.html) I can see :
Classes for building DOM trees from various input sources: SAX1 and
SAX2 parsers, htmllib, and directly using Expat.
However running help from the command line bring back a reader which
states that it can only receive streams of strings (I would expect it to
implement ContentHandler). I also found a class on ActiveState
cookbooks but it only works with name spaced SAX events. Before I go
about writing something is there a class which can do what I need?
The next bit is that the XMLGenerator only prints out code in one
huge big contiguous sequence of chars, I would like to have something
that pretty prints (with \t and \n) to the 'file-like' object (aka
output stream ;-)). Again this seems like a common thing so I was gonna
check to see if I there is already a class that does this?
As you can see I don't like writing code if it exists in a standard
distribution, I've checked for the api docs with google (used 'pyxml
doc', 'pyxml api doc', 'pyxml api docs', 'pyxml docs') and nada (only
howtos and tutorials on xml).
Thanks, in advance for your help.
