that's it. let me know what do you think. :)

I've created a new branch based on your code and added bunch of bugfixes:

Unfortunately it still doesn't work quite right (see tests/run- tests.php script).

PHPTAL's code-generator expects elements and attributes to have namespace prefixes, which were added as neccessary by the parser. DOM of course doesn't do this, which causes a lot of bugs and confusion. Handling of namespaces has to be fixed throughout the code before real DOM can be supported.

There are issues with DOM itself:
- it doesn't report line numbers for elements, so error messages (other than parse errors) can't include them. Not very user-friendly :( - non-validating parser can't support named entities (like  ), but users will expect them to work. Switching to validating parser is not an option, because it will reject incomplete HTML fragments and PHPTAL elements. - parser decodes numeric entities and represents them as literal characters, possibly exposing encoding issues.
