I'm pretty new to the community but I get an error using the minidom
parseString() method. Here is my code (ulta simple!):

import xml.dom.minidom
xml = "<tag>hello</tag>"
doc = xml.dom.minidom.parsString(xml)

And here is my error trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\", line 6, in <module>
    doc = xml.dom.minidom.parsString(xml)
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'dom'

I get this error no what string I gave it. I use python 2.6 (latest
stable release).

Can someone point in the right has not been very helpful.

You'll have to name your string differently; you can't have "xml" refer
to both the string and the package :)

Please refer to python-list or the comp.lang.python newsgroup for
further usage questions.
