Hi Tim,

Thanks for the review. The reason I stated Python 3.3 is because I followed
the documentation for that version. I'll go back and see if there are any
changes between Python 3.2 and 3.3 that make a difference here.

Is Python 3.2 an acceptable version?

The XFAIL is an Expected Failure. Expected Failures are caused when we know
that a certain test WILL fail because there is a problem with the
application under test. Maybe I should add some details about XPASS and
XFAIL to the documentation.

I guess a DTD would be a good option. I haven't really worked with them in
the past, but I'll go through a W3Schools tutorial and write one ASAP.

Though if XML is not easy to read/write, is there an alternative you would
prefer? I am still open to modifying that.

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
