<?php

$xml 
= <<<EOD
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<chapter xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
 <title>Books of the other guy..</title>
 <para>
  <xi:include href="book.xml">
   <xi:fallback>
    <error>xinclude: book.xml not found</error>
   </xi:fallback>
  </xi:include>
 </para>
</chapter>
EOD;

$dom = new DOMDocument;

// let's have a nice output
$dom->preserveWhiteSpace false;
$dom->formatOutput true;

// load the XML string defined above
$dom->loadXML($xml);

// substitute xincludes
$dom->xinclude();

echo 
$dom->saveXML();
