Examples

Example 518. Creating a new element and inserting it as root

<?php

$dom
= new DOMDocument('1.0', 'iso-8859-1');

$element = $dom->createElementNS('http://www.example.com/XFoo', 'xfoo:test', 'This is the root element!');

// We insert the new element as root (child of the document)
$dom->appendChild($element);

echo
$dom->saveXML();
?>

The above example will output:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xfoo:test xmlns:xfoo="http://www.example.com/XFoo">This is the root element!</xfoo:test>
