That just about concludes this little tour of parsing XML data with PHP. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, and there are numerous aspects of XML I haven't covered here. If you're interested in learning more about XML and XSL, you should visit the following links:

You can read more about the DOM, and its different incarnations, at:

The W3C's DOM specification, at http://www.w3.org/DOM/

The PHP manual pages, with user comments, are a great online resource, and you'll often find answers to common problems there. Even if you don't, they're well worth bookmarking:

PHP's DOM XML functions, at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.domxml.php

PHP's XML parsing functions, at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.xml.php

A number of developers have built and released free PHP classes to handle XML data - if you're ever on a tight deadline, using these classes might save you some development time.

And that's just about all for the moment. I hope you found this interesting, and that it helped to make the road ahead a little clearer. If you'd like to know more about PHP and XML, write in and tell me what you'd like to read about...and, until next time, stay healthy!
