Wrap your HTML into CDATA tags:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <text>
  2. <![CDATA[
  3.     <p> <!--paragraph1--> some text </p>
  4.     <p><!--paragraph2--> again some text</p>
  5. ]]>
  6. </text>
and in your php code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $xml = simplexml_load_file('path/to/your/file.xml', 'SimpleXMLElement', LIBXML_NOCDATA);
  2. echo $xml -> text;
