effbot ElementTree question


Is anyone here familiar with ElementTree by effbot?

With <html><body>hel lo</body></html> how is "hello" stored in the
element tree? Which node is it under? Similarly, with:
foo <a href = "blah"> blah </a> bar, how is bar stored? Which node is
it in?

reposting the reply I just posted to the discussion board where you
asked the same question:

in the body case, the "hello" text ends up in the 'text' attribute of the "body"
node (in HTML/CSS terminology, this is known as an "anonymous block").

in the other case, the trailing text is stored in the 'tail' attribute of the
preceeding element ("a" in this case); see:


for details on how ElementTree deals with mixed content.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
