AW: Buffer restriction in dom.minidom?

Can i call normalize to the dom root node so that all adjacent child text
nodes attached to one of the element nodes are joined?

created one child node out of the text node as i further expected although
both are running Python 2.2.3 on WinXP.
Does anyone know whats going on there?

the parser may chose to split CDATA over multiple Text nodes:


"A single CDATA section may be represented by more than one
node in the document tree."

if this matters to your program, use "normalize" before accessing the


(using normalize is a good idea even if you're using a normalizing parser;
it prevents nasty surprises the day you or someone else wants to use
your code on a DOM tree created by some other part of your program...)
