Is it possible to use an xml file in python? without using the bindings for python for mapnik. basically i'm using django/geodjango, postgis and well i decided i'd try and design the map on tilemill then call the exported xml file. I've tried to look it up. but sadly haven't found anything.

Why don't you want to use mapnik and it's Python binding? – Nathan W Feb 2 '13 at 14:02
its not i don't want to use it. I'm looking to see if there are alternatives. like calling an xml file – iamjoanel Feb 2 '13 at 23:38
Do you mean just calling the xml with mapnik? Because you can't really call a xml file. – Nathan W Feb 3 '13 at 0:17
