Thanks for the feedback,
- thanks for pointing out the incorrect reference, I'll replace it with
this one :
as far as the parsing is concerned, I heard a lot of good things about
ElementTree (
which is included in the Python standard library
- For the XML parsing, I go from the assumption that the diff of two pdml
files is also a valid pdml file that I can convert to html where what I
call "diff" is just the combination of the two outputs where I'll find a
way to retain which line belongs to which file then use a color scheme to
prettify all that while not being too fancy.

Regards, Paul
