PHP5 HTML DOM
Quick question regarding PHP5's newest DOM abilities. They include HTML, and while it's possible (with a little finagling) to obtain, say, a specific DIV by it's 'id', it seems nearly impossible (short of looping through the items attributes and children) to output it's EXACT contents. Meaning, if a DIV looks like so:
<div id='my_div'> <table> some table related stuff </table> </div>
FYI, my ultimate goal is to be able to "screen scrape" based on a DOMElement's 'id'. I've been using Regular Expressions to accomplish this, and, while very handy, I'd rather be 100% sure I'm getting what I ask for based on a specific 'id' rather than having to try and parse with RegEx.
Thanks in advance!I reserve the right to contradict myself. . .
