You can’t use ‘tidy’ python binding with App Engine as far as I know so use this for cleaning up your xml and html characters:

import cgi
string = str('I hate monkey & hyena characters')

Should print out:

I hate monkey & hyena characters

If you want to change the content type or mime type for your Google App Engine template:

self.response.headers['Content-Type'] = "application/xml"

Full example:

class MainPage(webapp.RequestHandler):
def get(self):
greetings_query = databasemodel.all()

template_values = {
'greetings': greetings_query
self.response.headers['Content-Type'] = "application/xml"
path = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'templates/index.xml')
self.response.out.write(template.render(path, template_values))

Here’s a quick set up for Google App Engine’s SDK on Nginx.
