I have found OUnit to be fairly natural.  I haven't used it much, but it
was easy to pick up having had some exposure to JUnit, py.test, and a
Lisp test framework or two.

I've quite enjoyed Xmlm.  It is an event-based pull parser, where you
set up an event stream and then ask it for each event in turn.  By far
the easiest XML parsing paradigm I've used (short of tree querying
systems such as XPath or LINQ); pattern matching over events results in
simpler code than the inversion-of-control usage in a SAX or expat
parser.
