With beautifulsoup, you'll need to install a parser for HTML, i'll recommend "html5parser". Then from your code, you can simply do something like for example. from bs4 import BeautifulSoup as B a = """ <form action=''></form> """ soup = B(a, "html5parser") for form in soup("form"): form["action"] = "decoded.php" print(form) ...... NOTE : if the "a" variable above has it html coming from an online site, you'll need to import urllib.request from urrlib.request import urlopen a = urllopen("www.somesite.com") soup = B(a.read(), "html5parser"). .....e.t.c If the data is from online, the data-types by default would be "byte" so might need to reconfigure the default encoding too
