Man, that's REALLY bad XML.

I'd stop when it hits the ending </item> tag.

Take a look at http://www.analysisandsolutions.com/code/phpxml.htm.  For 
your case, in the EndHandler() function, put in the case 'ITEM'  In that 
case, have the code process the data you've accumulated and exit.

But, if you want to stick with your methodology, below, here's a 

if ((filemtime($rdffile) < $refreshtime) || (filesize($rdffile) == 0)) {
   $RDF = fopen( $rdffile, 'w' ) or die( "Cannot open $rdffile" );
   $FILE = fopen( $remote, 'r' ) or die( "Cannot open $remote" );

   while (!feof( $FILE )) {
      $Line = fgets( $FILE, 1024 );
      fwrite( $RDF, $Line);
      if ( preg_match('/<\/item>/', $Line) ) {

   fclose( $RDF );
   fclose( $FILE );
