Finding out about html_doc()

Hi

I'm trying to get some PHP4 code working on PHP5 - and am having an
issue with a part of the code that uses html_doc() to turn html text
scraped from a website into something that can be processed by DomXml
functions like xpath_eval()

I've found a nice looking wrapper at
http://alexandre.alapetite.net/doc-a...xml-php4-php5/
which seems like it should do PHP4<->PHP5 work, except that it doesnt
support html_doc().

I've tried replacing html_doc() with:
domxml_open_mem($doc,DOMXML_LOAD_RECOVERING)
but I can't get that to work even with the PHP4 - is that down to
validation errors in the HTML?

My problem is that I can't find any documentation to explain what
html_doc() is meant to do and I'm new to the details of domxml coding
(though I know what an XPath is...)

In summary, two questions:
- can I use domxml_open_mem() as a replacement for html_doc() in
PHP4/domxml. If so, how?
- where can I find documentation on html_doc()?

I've googled, searched php.net and looked through group archives and can't
find anything - any ideas or information welcomed!

Thanks

Peter

For the record, the PHP5 equivalent of html_doc() is DOMDocument::loadHTML()

And Alexandre is very helpful!

Cheers
