I'm not sure sgmllib would be the best target. Specifically if it's
used in many other products. But maybe you are talking about a new
8.2 sgmllib -- Simple SGML parser
This module defines a class SGMLParser which serves as the basis
parsing text files formatted in SGML (Standard Generalized Mark-up
Language). In fact, it does not provide a full SGML parser -- it
parses SGML insofar as it is used by HTML, and the module only
as a base for the htmllib module. Another HTML parser which
XHTML and offers a somewhat different interface is available in the
It seems a better candidate.
8.1 HTMLParser -- Simple HTML and XHTML parser
New in version 2.2.
This module defines a class HTMLParser which serves as the basis
parsing text files formatted in HTML (HyperText Mark-up
XHTML. Unlike the parser in htmllib, this parser is not based on
SGML parser in sgmllib.
I'm adding them to the list of HTML parsers.
