Note to self
When writing an XML parsing class in PHP, don’t forget the ampersands in the following code snippet:
xml_set_element_handler($parser, array(&$this, '_tagOpen'), array(&$this, '_tagClose')); xml_set_character_data_handler($parser, array(&$this, '_cdata'));
Failure to include them can lead to two days of debugging, frustration and hair loss. Solution found thanks to Keith’s PHP rant (which itself reads like the result of several days of hell). Roll on PHP 5, where objects are passed by reference by default.
