Re: lxml Transformations

Comment on lxml Transformations

It's finicky and difficult to program to. The streaming model doesn't make sense for this set of problems either. If you are using HTML that is frequently found in the wild it fails in lots of ways. You may not encounter these problems from testing, but they can occur later as you expand the sources of content you are dealing with.
