    Questions About DOM passing

    Hi
    I was just wondering a few things.

    1) i can't find an easy to follow dom parser web scrapping tutorial. do you know any?

    2)Are there any disagvantages to using DOM compared to php scrapping methods?

    3) can you get the users server to request the html from the site you want to scrape and then send it to the server side for parsing?

    Thanks

    I've had success before with a library called Simple HTML DOM (a php script). Its got plently of examples, and while it doesn't have tutorials, it has a few examples of scraping sites.
