EmeraldTree, a light-weight toolkit for XML processing in Python
================================================================

EmeraldTree is a fork of ElementTree - the main differences are:
 * It has a slightly different API:
   * Handling of text: it uses unicode objects as children (not as
     "tail" attributes of the elements)
 * API cleanups, removing backward compatibility 
 * Better unicode support
 * PolyglotWriter (for writing html5 that is also well-formed xml)
 * Other improvements / optimizations

The fork happened at ElementTree 1.3a3-20070912-preview, for more details
please see the repositories:

   http://hg.moinmo.in/EmeraldTree/
   http://svn.effbot.org/public/elementtree-1.3/

Please note: EmeraldTree works with Python 2.4 (or later).

Changes are (c) by their authors (see also source files) and licensed
under the same Python (MIT style) license as ElementTree (see below):

elementtree/

  ElementTree.py              Element tree implementation.  For a minimal
                              install, this file is all you need.

  ElementPath.py              Element path support module.  Adds limited
                              XPath support to find/findtext/findall.

  ElementInclude.py           Element include support module.  Adds limited
                              XInclude support.

  HTMLTreeBuilder.py          Element tree builder for HTML.  This only
                              works for mostly well-formed HTML; if you
                              need something that can parse arbitrary
                              HTML at least as good as your browser, use
                              TidyHTMLTreeBuilder or TidyTools (see below).

  TidyHTMLTreeBuilder.py      Element tree builder for HTML, based on the
                              tidylib library.  This tree builder requires
                              the _elementtidy extension module (available
                              from http://effbot.org/downloads).

  SimpleXMLWriter.py          Simple XML writer

  TidyTools.py                Build element trees from HTML, using the
                              external 'tidy' utility.

setup.py                      Build/installation script

docs/index.html		      API reference pages.

demo*.py                      Sample scripts
samples/*                     Sample data

selftest.py                   Selftest (requires Python 2.1 or later)
tidytest.py                   Selftest for TidyHTMLTreeBuilder components.
