Hi gang:

Here's the problem.

I have 184 HTML pages in a directory and each page contain a question. The question is noted in the HTML DOM like so:

<p class="question">
  Who is Roger Rabbit?

My question is -- how can I extract the string "Who is Roger Rabbit?" from each page using php? You see, I want to store the questions in a database without having to re-type, or cut/paste, each one.

Now, I can extract each question by using javascript --


-- and stepping through each page, but I don't want to use javascript for this.

I have not found/created a working example of this using PHP. I tried using PHP's getElementByID(), but that requires the target file to be valid xml and the string to be contained within an ID and not a class. These pages do not support either requirement.

Additionally, I realize that I can load the files and parse out what is between the <p> tags, but I was hoping for a "GetElementByClass" way to do this.

So, is there one?
