Using expat to translate tags..

I'm using expat along with the XML support in PHP 3.0.6
(http://www.php.net) to do some machinations on some XML files I have.
What I have is some XML like this...
<p stylename="heading 1" align="center" fontname="Arial" fontsize="72"
bold="on" charset="256" color="1"><string>&tab;</string><string
fontname="Arial" fontsize="72" bold="on" charset="256" color="1">MBBS STAGE
1: &line;</string><string fontname="Arial" fontsize="72" bold="off"
italic="on" charset="256" color="1">Basic Cell Biology</string></p>
(this was created with rtf2xml from Omnimark)
and want to be able to change the XML so that I get something like;
<heading_1>MBBS STAGE 1 - Basic Cell Biology</heading_1> (ok, I'll
*actually* end up replacing heading_1 with H1...)
ie, I want to output a different tag which is dependant on the value of the
It seems that although expat will provide the start_element routine with
information such as the tag and any attribute, the attributes are dropped
when the end_element routine is called. This seems to make it difficult to
close the tag properly....
Has anyone any ideas? Am I going about this wrongly?
