Or, to put it more succinctly, Paul Prescod is particularly suited to
XML handling with Python.

Actually, any object-oriented language should do a pretty good job of
handling XML.  The initial push among developers was in Java, but now
there's excellent support growing in Python and Perl5 as well.
Personally, I use Perl5 and Java, but I do sneak into JPython once and 
a while so that I have an interpreter to poke around in the Java

C++ is still badly under-represented in XML software, but you can
always use the C Expat parser.

All the best,
