I modified xml.sax.saxutils.XMLGenerator,
_xmlplus.sax.saxutils.XMLGenerator, and
_xmlplus.sax.saxutils.LexicalXMLGenerator so that they do no longer
produce those
ugly close tags for empty elements, but use the short version. So instead of
<empty></empty> you get just <empty/>.  :) 

I used the version of that is shipped with python 2.5.1.

Some (ugly) parsers insist on <container></
container> when the element is not declared to 
be empty, so this should be optional (the 
default being generate <container/>)

The attached patch makes this new feature optional, by passing the
"empty_element_tag" option to the constructor.
msg66552 - (view) Author: Jonathan Hitchcock (vhata) Date: 2008-05-10 18:12
I have also added some unit tests to test the feature with the option
turned on, and off - patch attached.

Acting on a comment (with which I agree) that the "empty_elements_tag"
wasn't such an obvious name, here's a (combined) patch which uses the
name "short_empty_elements" (which was my original gut-feeling idea for
the name, before I checked the W3C standard and found that they called
them "Empty-Elements tags") instead.

This bug is tagged as easy and appears to already have a patch and a test posted from two years ago. What is still to be done here?

I added the “needs review” keyword, to make this easy to find for reviewers, changed the version (new features don’t go in older versions; check if your patches still apply), and added MvL as nosy, since he’s listed as expert for the xml package in py3k/Misc/maintainers.rst
msg110591 - (view) Author: Mark Lawrence (BreamoreBoy) * Date: 2010-07-17 18:26
I believe 3.2 is still open for new features.
msg111057 - (view) Author: Neil Muller (Neil Muller) Date: 2010-07-21 14:04
Updated version of the patch against current py3k svn (r83022) attached.

This is a combined patch, including the previous xml.sax.saxutil changes (including the 'short_empty_elements' keyword) and the new tests.

The patch looks clean to me, applied small edits to change it from git to svn.  Changed test_sax got 7 errors on run.  Changed saxutils 53 tests all passed.  Can this please be committed.

Can a committer look at this please.

Patch looks good to me.
msg118861 - (view) Author: Neil Muller (Neil Muller) Date: 2010-10-16 09:34
So what still needs to happen to get this in? 

Patch still applies to current python 3.2 trunk (r85564).

Committed Neil's patch (after adding docs) in r85671.  Thanks.
