Re: My first bit of ElementTree

I thought the 'text' attribute thing with ElementTree was a little odd at first as well. However, beyound this, I think ElementTree is Pythonic and quite handy. I have written dozens of parsers and generators with ElementTree and can no complain. Also, I do use http://dustman.net/andy/python/HyperText which reminds me a bit of what your doing here.
