We will go over the three common ways to output XML from Python: 

  1. Direct printing of the output text

  2. Using an XML library like ElementTree

  3. Using a templating system like Genshi

Some pros and cons of each will be explored.  Note that although Python will 
be used the concepts are applicable to other common languages as well, like 
PERL, C++, or Java.

The main focus will be on the Genshi based Python script used to create KML 
from the APRS system.  The script is a Genshi templating example that outputs 
GoogleEarth KML from python data, which in this case is coming from active 
APRS transmissions of GPS postion data.
