XML Child Tag rename
i have done many different way to rename Child TAG to allow
here is example
<root> <parent> <child>bar</child> <price>20</price> <author> dunno</author> </parent> </root>
i know it sound wrong code but i have different many way
$dita = new DOMDocument; $dita->Load("book.xml"); $ditaList=$dita->getElementsByTagName("book")->item($id); $tagToReplace=$ditaList->getElementsByTagName("author")->item($id); $ditaList->replaceChild($tagToReplace);
my aim is change on outputclass XML like
<?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <parent> <child outputclass="internal" >bar</child> <price outputclass="internal >20</price> <author outputclass= "external"> dunno</author> </parent> </root>
or prefer use
PHP (or XML) code call the "control file (can be an ASCII text file or an XML file)" , and then the PHP code does the processing logic on the desired DITA files based on the info in the control file.

You're usage of replacechild is incorrect. ReplaceChild requires two parameters, the new and the old nodes.
However, I don't see where you're actually needing to do this. The difference between the two blocks of xml code only indicate changes in attributes. You can fetch a domNodeList from the getElementsByTagName method (it won't work on book though, since you don't have a book element), iterate through the list or fetch a single item (I assume that $id is for this purpose, but I don't see it defined anywhere), and use the createAttribute method on DomDocument, and append this to the desired DOMNode(s).
