-:mod:`xml.dom.minidom` is a light-weight implementation of the Document Object
-Model interface.  It is intended to be simpler than the full DOM and also
-significantly smaller.

-.. note::
-
-   The :mod:`xml.dom.minidom` module provides an implementation of the W3C-DOM,
-   with an API similar to that in other programming languages.  Users who are
-   unfamiliar with the W3C-DOM interface or who would like to write less code
-   for processing XML files should consider using the
-   :mod:`xml.etree.ElementTree` module instead.

 DOM applications typically start by parsing some XML into a DOM.  With
 :mod:`xml.dom.minidom`, this is done through the parse functions::
