That's not a parser issue, that's according to the DOM specification.

> Attr objects inherit the Node interface, but since they are not

They are not child nodes, so they shouldn't be in the child_nodes collection.

Doesn't pick up nodes of type XML_ATTRIBUTE_NODE (attributes)

Use DomNode->has_attributes() then DomNode->attributes() to retrieve a list (NameNodeMap object) of Attr objects for current node.

Is likely to be a parser issue, I'm using version 2.4.19-4 of libxml2.
