I am having problem that, after replacement, i did not get < in place of &lt; or > in place of &gt; because after the replacement output doesn't come in ckeditor where as source shows the code correctly but in that code <[CDATA[ comes like <--[CDATA[ So what should be done? My replacement file is like...

  1. $doc = new DOMDocument;
  2. $doc->load('xml_mail_format2.xml');
  3. $playlist= $doc->documentElement;
  5. $track = $playlist->getElementsByTagName("message")->item(0);
  7. $newTrack = $doc->createElement('message',"<![CDATA[".$_POST['editor123']."]]>");
  9. $oldtrack= $track->parentNode->replaceChild($newTrack,$track);
  11. echo $doc->saveXML();
  13. $doc->save("xml_mail_format2.xml");
In this file $_POST['editor123'] contains the formatted design from ckeditor.

your intention is correct as you need to put the content in a CDATA section. however, a CDATA section is created differently (and because of that, your "CDATA section" is inserted as comment).
a CDATA section in XML is an own node type, therefore you have to create it explicitly: DOMDocument->createCDATASec tion($textConte nt);

It is giving me 2 errors that :
1)Warning</b>: DOMDocument::cr eateElement() expects parameter 2 to be string, object given

2)Argument 1 passed to DOMNode::replac eChild() must be an instance of DOMNode, null given

the second error is a follow up of the first error.

you attach a CDATA node like any other node (itís not text, after all), by DOMNode->appendChild( )
