    resolved [RESOLVED] Retrieving information from a html file

    I would like to access certain information in a html file given through an url. I have done this before using regex, but that is hardly easy. I was wondering if i could retrieve information easier using some DOM syntax, as if i were to run JavaScript in the loaded html document.

    Knowing that php is capable of extracting information from xml, I'm wondering if information can be extracted from a html document in a similar manner.

    Thanks for any help

    DomDocument is the best way to parse HTML source, or if it's XHTML you can use SimpleXML.
