Python is a language for manipulating XML, and this volume offers a solid foundation for using these two languages together. Complete with practical examples that highlight common application tasks, the book starts with the basics then quickly progresses to more complex topics such as transforming XML with XSLT and querying XML with XPath. It also explores more advanced subjects, such as SOAP and distributed web services.
