Take the following code

$htmlTree = array("Something", 123); // Some variable

include('html.parser.class.php');
$parser = new html_parser;

// $htmlTree is now an empty string!


On a somewhat related note, I highly recommend reading and following the guidelines here: http://www.phptherightway.com/

Since $htmlTree is in the global namespace, I highly recommend that you do not use it for your array to avoid clashing. Use $localTree instead.

Keep in mind that there is your way, their way and my way. I am currently doing it my way :)

I will eventually move it over as a class property, in the meantime the license allows you to take this FREE code and modify it however it best fits your needs.
