To print the node simply create a new document import the node and save it to html or whatever you need

e.g.:

<?php
$temp
= new DOMDocument('1.0', 'UTF-8');
$temp_node = $temp->importNode($mynode, TRUE);
$temp->appendChild($temp_node);
$temp->saveHTML();
?>

Only to correct a very small error, but maybe difficult to find in che function GetContentAsString posted by someone in April 2005.
There was $anode-node_value() instead of $anode->node_value().
This is the right version:

<?php

function GetContentAsString($node) {   
 
$st = "";
  foreach (
$node->child_nodes() as $cnode)
   if (
$cnode->node_type()==XML_TEXT_NODE)
    
$st .= $cnode->node_value();
   else if (
$cnode->node_type()==XML_ELEMENT_NODE) {
    
$st .= "<" . $cnode->node_name();
     if (
$attribnodes=$cnode->attributes()) {
      
$st .= " ";
       foreach (
$attribnodes as $anode)
        
$st .= $anode->node_name() . "='" .
          
$anode->node_value() . "'";
       }   
    
$nodeText = GetContentAsString($cnode);
     if (empty(
$nodeText) && !$attribnodes)
      
$st .= " />";        // unary
    
else
      
$st .= ">" . $nodeText . "</" .
        
$cnode->node_name() . ">";
     }
  return
$st;
  }

?>

get_content() always returns UTF-8 (as should be!).
To get the content right just code it like

$myContent = utf8_decode($myNode->get_content());

Works fine!

Seems that get_content() always returns utf-8.
Opening document with something like

$dom->dump_mem(true,"ISO-8859-1")

makes no difference!

Here's a routine I wrote that acts like get_content() but returns embedded XHTML in the string returned.  I needed this as I was wanting to embed HTML formatting codes in my HTML (e.g., "<br />") and converting them to HTML entities or using CDATA was a huge hassle.

<?php

function GetContentAsString($node) {   
 
$st = "";
  foreach (
$node->child_nodes() as $cnode)
    if (
$cnode->node_type()==XML_TEXT_NODE)
     
$st .= $cnode->node_value();
    else if (
$cnode->node_type()==XML_ELEMENT_NODE) {
     
$st .= "<" . $cnode->node_name();
      if (
$attribnodes=$cnode->attributes()) {
       
$st .= " ";
        foreach (
$attribnodes as $anode)
         
$st .= $anode->node_name() . "='" .
           
$anode-node_value() . "'";
        }   
     
$nodeText = GetContentAsString($cnode);
      if (empty(
$nodeText) && !$attribnodes)
       
$st .= " />";        // unary
     
else
       
$st .= ">" . $nodeText . "</" .
         
$cnode->node_name() . ">";
      }
  return
$st;
  }

?>
