<?standalone yes?>

*** post for FREE via your newsreader at post.newsfeed.com ***

I can figure out how to set the standalone attribute in the <? xml
version="1.0 ?> tag eg <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>

closest I have got to what I need is:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<?standalone yes?>
<xpg creator="crusher" version="1.0">

using minidom in this code(snippet):
xmldoc = Document()
pi = xmldoc.createProcessingInstruction("standalone","y es")
xmlroot = xmldoc.createElement("xpg")

To set this in DOM terms you would need to use the DOM Level 3 Core
property 'xmlStandalone' on the Document object, see:


However, DOM3 is still in Working Draft (though hopefully not for
much longer), and it's not yet supported by minidom. If you don't mind
trying a different DOM implementation, this one supports it:

Simplest approach might be to manually munge the <?xml ?> tag
as you write the output to a file. You could do a simple re.sub()
or something like this, which we've used from time to time with no
ill effects to date (pseudo-code, not executable as-is):

xml = '<?xml version="1.0"?><doc><somestuff/></doc>'

xmlEnd = xml.find('?>') + 2

file.write('<?xml standalone="yes" version="1.0"?>' + xml[xmlEnd:])

In other words, find the end of the original <?xml?> tag, strip it,
substitute your own, continue on with life.

Simplest thing that could possibly work...
