I am new to xml and web services -
I  have an example of a web service request in asp and need to get it into php
I have spent hours trying to understand soap wsdl etc and get this to work with no luck
I would appreciate it if someone would show me what this should look like in php

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
      dim Account, Username, Password, WebService_URL
      Account = "DEMO_415_Standard"
      Username = "DEMO_415_Standard"
      Password = "1234"
      WebService_URL = ""

      dim soapMessage, SOAPObject, soapResult

      soapMessage = "<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""utf-8""?>" &_
      "<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="""" xmlns:xsd="""" xmlns:soap="""">" &_
      "<soap:Header>" &_
            "<UserCredentials xmlns="""">" &_
            "<Account>" & Account & "</Account>" &_
            "<Username>" & Username & "</Username>" &_
            "<Password>" & Password & "</Password>" &_
            "</UserCredentials>" &_
      "</soap:Header>" &_
      "<soap:Body>" &_
            "<GetList xmlns="""">" &_
            "<HeadersOnly>false</HeadersOnly>" &_
            "</GetList>" &_
      "</soap:Body>" &_

      set SOAPObject = server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
      call SOAPObject.Open("POST", WebService_URL, false)

      call SOAPObject.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8")
      call SOAPObject.setRequestHeader("Content-Length", len(soapMessage))
      call SOAPObject.setRequestHeader("SOAPAction", "")

      call SOAPObject.send(soapMessage)

      if SOAPObject.ReadyState = 4 then

            set soapResult = server.CreateObject("msxml2.domdocument.4.0")
            call soapResult.loadXML(SOAPObject.responseText)
            dim nodes : set nodes = SOAPResult.selectNodes("//NewsItem")
            dim g
            for g = 0 to nodes.length - 1
                  if nodes(g).selectSingleNode("GUID").text = request.QueryString("News_GUID") then
                        response.Write("<b>&raquo;&nbsp;<a href=""ws_getnews.asp?News_GUID=" & server.URLEncode(nodes(g).selectSingleNode("GUID").text) & """>" & nodes(g).selectSingleNode("Subject").text & "</a></b><br>")
                        response.Write("<div style=""padding-left:15px"">" & nodes(g).selectSingleNode("Body").text & "</div><br/>")
                        response.Write("&raquo;&nbsp;<a href=""ws_getnews.asp?News_GUID=" & server.URLEncode(nodes(g).selectSingleNode("GUID").text) & """>" & nodes(g).selectSingleNode("Subject").text & "</a><br>")
