DomDocument -> outputting saveHTML()

Hi all,

So i have just wrote some code that changes and images to text within the html shown below:

      
$movement =  $article->childNodes->item(12)->ownerDocument->saveHTML($article->childNodes->item(12))."<br />";	
					@$dom3->loadHTML($movement);
					 $xpath5 = new DOMXPath($dom3);
					foreach($xpath5->query('//img[contains(@src, "blue")]') as $link) {
    $link->parentNode->replaceChild($dom3->createTextNode(" > "), $link);
}
					foreach($xpath5->query('//img[contains(@src, "red")]') as $link) {
    $link->parentNode->replaceChild($dom3->createTextNode(" < "), $link);
}
			echo $dom3->saveHTML();

Open in new window


so an example of this would be

before
<td class="winner betting-movement">
                11/8<img src="/images/site/blue-arrow-small.gif" width="6" height="11">6/4          </td>

Open in new window


after

<html><body><td class="winner betting-movement">
                11/8 &gt; 6/4           </td><br></body></html>

Open in new window



what i would like to do now is go from this echo $dom3->saveHTML(); to just showing the text e.g " 11/8 &gt; 6/4  "

i thought something like this would do it but i stand corrected echo $dom3->saveHTML()->textContent;

Try this

<?php

// Set up some test data
//
$data = <<<DOC
<html><body><td class="winner betting-movement">
                11/8 &gt; 6/4           </td><br></body></html>

DOC;



// Strip out the content
//
$text = 'Nothing found';

if ( preg_match( '#.*?<td[^>]+>([^<]+).*#is', $data, $match ) )
     $text = trim( $match[1] );


echo "Got '$text'";
