Elegant XML parsing using the ElementTree Module

Mark Mruss, from the, wrote an interesting article on an "Elegant XML parsing using the ElementTree Module". I had a little project on my job on which I had to read some XML data and make some reports with them. I am using PHP to that, but after reading this Mark Mruss's article, I am regretting not have started with Python since the begging.

"XML is everywhere. It seems you can’t do much these days unless you utilize XML in one way or another. Fortunately, Python developers have a new tool in our standard arsenal: the ElementTree module. This article aims to introduce you to reading, writing, saving, and loading XML using the ElementTree module.
