SimpleXML & Google images

Hi, I'm writing a script that would (hopefully) search google images
for whatever, and then return a list of URLs for the image. Right now I
have:

$dom = new DomDocument();

$url = "http://images.google.com/images?q=hello";

$dom->loadHTMLFile($url);

$sxe = simplexml_import_dom($dom);
foreach($sxe->xpath('//img') as $node)
{
echo $node->src;
}

What this is supposed to do (line by line):
Make a new DomDocument
Define $url
load the HTML file from $url
make a simpleXML object from the loaded DOM
go through all the image tags (using a DomNodeList w/ xpath) and print
out the src attribute of the node.

What it does:
Prints nothing.

Just wondering if anyone knew what ws goin on.
Thanks.

It prints nothing because you have error_reporting disabled in php.ini.
If you enable it you'll see what's going on. For example, here's what
happened when I ran your code:

PHP Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile(): Unexpected end tag : head in
http://images.google.com/images?q=hello, line: 32 in foo.php on line 7

Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile(): Unexpected end tag : head in
http://images.google.com/images?q=hello, line: 32 in foo.php on line 7
PHP Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile(): htmlParseStartTag: misplaced
<bodytag in http://images.google.com/images?q=hello, line: 32 in
foo.phpon line 7

Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile(): htmlParseStartTag: misplaced
<bodytag in http://images.google.com/images?q=hello, line: 32 in
foo.php on line 7

Ok, Anyone know how to fix it?
