in thread XML data reading/output

I got better results with

$doc->findnodes( '//descriptors[@type="CTC"]/descriptor/mainterm/text( +)'
    The three changes I added are:
  • an @ for the type attribute
  • the /descriptor element (although the xml is not well formed)
  • /text() since it appears they desire a text node

    arg, yeah, dumb mistakes. But not the third one. Contrary to your claims, the OP wants the whole element ('<mainterm weight="a">G</mainterm>'), not just the text ('G').
