Most PHP programmers will eventually run into an XML data set. The easiest way to deal with this data is using the SimpleXML extension for PHP. In this course^ David Powers walks through loading and extracting data from a basic XML document^ working with namespaces^ and editing XML elements and attributes with SimpleXML and the XPath query language. He also shows practical uses for XML^ such as displaying text as well as images from an RSS feed^ and the process for generating new XML documents from scratch with SimpleXML.
