I've spent the last day exploring the state of 0.8.4 and SAX2, and as
far as I can see the following is the case:
* Only expat of the distributed SAX2 parsers supports start/endPrefixMapping
* Only expat of the distributed SAX2 parsers supports setDocumentLocator
Given that I need a validating parser, that's a bit unfortunate.
PyXML hasn't moved forward for some time -- is the energy for Python
and XML going somewhere else, or does no-one care enough about
validation. . .?
Not a criticism, a genuine request for information. I am prepared to
look at either
1) Building a validator on top of expat;
2) Adding support for start/endPrefixMapping and (easy)
setDocumentLocator to SAX2/xmlproc.
if there's really nothing else out there.
