this was a previous question I had:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/JavaScript/Q_21927719.html

this was the answer:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/HTML/Q_21926190.html#17155324

now, can this be done in PHP as well? in the same way, but with different functions?  in a different way?

i guess all i really need to know is if there is something similar to the ASP script creating an XMLHttp object which "actually retrieves the entire contents of the page".
i am just trying to intercept the HTML source contents.

thank you in advance.
