Examples

XML

<root atr="100">
  text1
  <child atr="atr">
    <superchild atr="">sctext1</superchild>
    tail1
    tail2
  </child>
  tail
  <child atr="">text</child>
</root>

Old way

root = Element('root', atr=str(100))
root.text = 'text1'
child = SubElement(root, 'child', atr="atr")
superchild = SubElement(root, 'superchild', atr="" if value is None else value)
superchild.text = 'sctext1'
superchild.tail = 'tail1'
superchild.tail += 'tail2'
child.tail = 'tail'
child = SubElement(root, 'child', atr="")
child.text = 'text'

New way

root = E('root', atr=100).add(
         'text1',
         E('child', atr="atr").add(
           E('superchild', atr=None).add('sctext1'),
           'tail1',
           'tail2'
         ),
         'tail',
         E('child', atr="").add(
             'text'
         )
     )
