I can't find my benchmarks now, but I guess they are not really interesting. ElementTree wasn't really an option because of roundtrip issues. Speed improved substantially and memory consumption dropped enormously. Some large XML files could actually be processed for the first time. Thanks a lot for lxml - it is now used in the latest release of the Translate Toolkit. Regards Friedel
