editing XML via DOM


I'm new to Python and XML but still I want to create something that
includes creating and editing XML using Python.

Now I'm looking for a little example program that does (some of) this to
set me on my way.

Is there something like this available or can somebody give me some
example lines that creates and saves some XML data?

I use a really forgiving XML library called 'microdom' that resides in
the twisted library. I won't give an example of that - but I do
recommend it if you have a situation where you need to parse crappy

A quick google comes up with:

which shows how to use xml.dom.ext.rea der.Sax.FromXml File and then
doing some stuff with createElement, appendChild and
getElementsByTa gName.

I like to announce you the product X2U, avaible under http://www.lumrix.net/x2. X2U is an acronym for "XML to user".

X2U allows users tp fill out simple web forms, which are automatically derived from XML models. The XML model provides the XML structure and an interface...

Does anyone use emacs together with both WordStar key bindings and python mode? I'm afraid that Wordstar editing key commands are burned R/O into my knuckles! I would like to play with emacs for Python editing but I'm having (2) problems. 1) When I load a .py file, emacs automatically overrides my wordstar-mode with python-mode, forcing all the keybindings back to emacs native keys. Why?
