+What is lxml?
+=============
+
+lxml is the most feature-rich and easy-to-use library for processing XML and HTML in the Python language.
+It's also very fast and memory friendly, just so you know.
+
+For an introduction and further documentation, see `doc/main.txt`_.
+
+For installation information, see `INSTALL.txt`_.
+
+
+Support the project
+-------------------
+
+Most people who use lxml for their daily work do so because they like using it.
+If you like it, send us a flattr.
+
+.. class:: center
+
+ |FlattrLink|_
+
+.. _FlattrLink: https://flattr.com/submit/auto?user_id=scoder&url=https://github.com/lxml/lxml&title=lxml&language=en_GB&tags=github&category=software
+
+However, if you are using lxml for your work and feel like you should
+give a bit of your own benefit back to support the project, consider
+sending us money through PayPal. Please read the Legal Notice below.
+
+.. class:: center

+ |Donate|_
+
+.. _Donate: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=R56JE3VCPDA9N
+
+Note that Flattr keeps 10% of the money for itself, so do not send
+any larger amounts through Flattr. Use PayPal for donations instead,
+or contact `Stefan Behnel`_ for other ways to support the lxml project,
+as well as commercial support, customisations and trainings.
