Matthew Turland's Blog:
Renaming a DOMNode in PHP
February 10, 2010 @ 09:16:58

Matthew Turland has a new post to his blog sharing a handy trick if you've ever looked for a way to use the DOM functionality on PHP to rename a certain node in an XML document. Since the node_name is read-only, some trickery is required.

A recent work assignment had me using PHP to pull HTML data into a DOMDocument instance and renaming some elements, such as b to strong or i to em. As it turns out, renaming elements using the DOM extension is rather tedious.

His method isn't so much of an update of what's already there as it is to replicate the attributes and child nodes of the node you're targeting and pus those back into the document with a call to replaceChild on the parent.
