DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile Load HTML from a file


bool DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile ( string $filename )

The function parses the HTML document in the file named filename. Unlike loading XML, HTML does not have to be well-formed to load.



The path to the HTML file.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. If called statically, returns a DOMDocument or FALSE on failure.


If an empty string is passed as the filename or an empty file is named, a warning will be generated. This warning is not generated by libxml and cannot be handled using libxml's error handling functions.

This method may be called statically, but will issue an E_STRICT error.

While malformed HTML should load successfully, this function may generate E_WARNING errors when it encounters bad markup. libxml's error handling functions may be used to handle these errors.


Example #1 Creating a Document
