As I already suggested for lxml, you can use the QName class to process qualified names, e.g.

    QName(some_element.tag).localname

Or even just

    QName(some_element).localname

It appears that ElementTree doesn't support this. It lists the QName type as "opaque". However, it does provide a "text" attribute that contains the qualified tag name.

http://docs.python.org/2/library/xml.etree.elementtree.html#xml.etree.ElementTree.QName

Here is the corresponding documentation from lxml:

http://lxml.de/api/lxml.etree.QName-class.html

QName instances in lxml provide the properties "localname", "namespace" and "text".
