Just a guess, but the buffer size might be so small that the text that you expect gets passed via **two** calls to _char_data(). You should refactor your code the simply collect all the text in _char_data() and act on it in the _end_element() handler.

So this probably isn't a bug in xml.parsers.expat.

Thank you so much Walter. I think that might be it - it fixed this particular instance, and it makes sense given what you have said. I'll proceed to close this up but will follow up if I encounter this issue when the data has changed.

Thanks again!
