/**
 * Php.XPath
 *
 * +======================================================================================================+
 * | A php class for searching an XML document using XPath, and making modifications using a DOM 
 * | style API. Does not require the DOM XML PHP library. 
 * |
 * +======================================================================================================+
 * | What Is XPath:
 * | --------------
 * | - "What SQL is for a rational database, XPath is for an XML document." -- Sam Blum
 * | - "The primary purpose of XPath is to address parts of an XML document. In support of this 
 * |    primary purpose, it also provides basic facilities for manipulting it." -- W3C
 * | 
 * | XPath in action and a very nice intro is under:
 * |    http://www.zvon.org/xxl/XPathTutorial/General/examples.html
 * | Specs Can be found under:
 * |    http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath     W3C XPath Recommendation 
 * |    http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20   W3C XPath Recommendation 
 * |
 * | NOTE: Most of the XPath-spec has been realized, but not all. Usually this should not be
 * |       problem as the missing part is either rarely used or it's simpler to do with PHP itself.
 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 * | Requires PHP version  4.0.5 and up
 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+

 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 * | Code Structure:
 * | --------------_
 * | In V3.0 the code has been split in 3 main objects. To keep usability easy all 3 
 * | objects are in this file (but may be split in 3 file in future).
 * |   +-------------+ 
 * |   |  XPathBase  | XPathBase holds general- and debugging-functions. 
 * |   +------+------+
 * |          v      
 * |   +-------------+ XPathEngine is the implementation of the W3C XPath spec. It contains the 
 * |   | XPathEngine | XML-import (parser), -export  and can handle xPathQueries. It's a fully 
 * |   +------+------+ functional class but has no functions to modify the XML-document (see following).
 * |          v      
 * |   +-------------+ 
 * |   |    XPath    | XPath extends the functionality with actions to modify the XML-document.
 * |   +-------------+ We tryed to implement a DOM - like interface.
 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 * | Usage:
 * | ------
 * | Scroll to the end of this file and you will find a little sample code to get you started
 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 * | Glossary:
 * | ---------
 * | To understand how to use the functions and to pass the right parameters, read following:
 * |     
 * | Document: (full node tree, XML-tree)
 * |     After a XML-source has been imported and parsed, it's stored as a tree of nodes sometimes 
 * |     refered as 'document'.
 * |     
 * | AbsoluteXPath: (xPath, xPathSet)
 * |     A absolute XPath is a string. It 'points' to *one* node in the XML-document. We use the
 * |     term 'absolute' to emphasise that it is not an xPath-query (see xPathQuery). A valid xPath 
 * |     has the form like '/AAA[1]/BBB[2]/CCC[1]'. Usually functions that require a node (see Node) 
 * |     will also accept an abs. XPath.
 * |     
 * | Node: (node, nodeSet, node-tree)
 * |     Some funtions require or return a node (or a whole node-tree). Nodes are only used with the 
 * |     XPath-interface and have an internal structure. Every node in a XML document has a unique 
 * |     corresponding abs. xPath. That's why public functions that accept a node, will usually also 
 * |     accept a abs. xPath (a string) 'pointing' to an existing node (see absolutXPath).
 * |     
 * | XPathQuery: (xquery, query)
 * |     A xPath-query is a string that is matched against the XML-document. The result of the match 
 * |     is a xPathSet (vector of xPath's). It's always possable to pass a single absolutXPath 
 * |     instead of a xPath-query. A valid xPathQuery could look like this:
 * |     '//XXX/*[contains(., "foo")]/..' (See the link in 'What Is XPath' to learn more).
 * |     
 * |     
 * +------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 * | Internals:
 * | ----------
 * | - The Node Tree
 * |   -------------
 * | A central role of the package is how the XML-data is stored. The whole data is in a node-tree.
 * | A node can be seen as the equvalent to a tag in the XML soure with some extra info.
 * | For instance the following XML 
 * |                        <AAA foo="x">***<BBB/><CCC/>**<BBB/>*</AAA>
 * | Would produce folowing node-tree:
 * |                              'super-root'      <-- $nodeRoot (Very handy)  
 * |                                    |                                           
 * |             'depth' 0            AAA[1]        <-- top node. The 'textParts' of this node would be
 * |                                /   |   \                     'textParts' => array('***','','**','*')
 * |             'depth' 1     BBB[1] CCC[1] BBB[2]               (NOTE: Is always size of child nodes+1)
 * | - The Node
 * |   --------
 * | The node itself is an structure desiged mainly to be used in conection with the interface of PHP.XPath.
 * | That means it's possible for functions to return a sub-node-tree that can be used as input of an other 
 * | PHP.XPath function.
 * | 
 * | The main structure of a node is:
 * |   $node = array(
 * |     'name'        => '',      # The tag name. E.g. In <FOO bar="aaa"/> it would be 'FOO'
 * |     'attributes'  => array(), # The attributes of the tag E.g. In <FOO bar="aaa"/> it would be array('bar'=>'aaa')
 * |     'textParts'   => array(), # Array of text parts surrounding the children E.g. <FOO>aa<A>bb<B/>cc</A>dd</FOO> -> array('aa','bb','cc','dd')
 * |     'childNodes'  => array(), # Array of refences (pointers) to child nodes.
 * |     
 * | For optimisation reasions some additional data is stored in the node too:
 * |     'parentNode'  => NULL     # Reference (pointer) to the parent node (or NULL if it's 'super root')
 * |     'depth'       => 0,       # The tag depth (or tree level) starting with the root tag at 0.
 * |     'pos'         => 0,       # Is the zero-based position this node has in the parent's 'childNodes'-list.
 * |     'contextPos'  => 1,       # Is the one-based position this node has by counting the siblings tags (tags with same name)
 * |     'xpath'       => ''       # Is the abs. XPath to this node.
 * | 
 * | - The NodeIndex
 * |   -------------
 * | Every node in the tree has an absolute XPath. E.g '/AAA[1]/BBB[2]' the $nodeIndex is a hash array
 * | to all the nodes in the node-tree. The key used is the absolute XPath (a string).

   *
   * You also may pass a 'xmlHeader' (usually something like <?xml version="1.0"? > that will
   * overwrite any other 'xmlHeader', if there was one in the original source.
   * Finaly, when exproting to HTML, you may pass a vector xPaths you want to hi-light.
   * The hi-lighted tags and attributes will receive a nice color. 
   * 
   * NOTE I : The output can have 2 formats:
   *       a) If "skip white spaces" is/was set. (Not Recommended - slower)
   *          The output is formatted by adding indenting and carriage returns.
   *       b) If "skip white spaces" is/was *NOT* set.
   *          'as is'. No formatting is done. The output should the same as the 
   *          the original parsed XML source.

   * Translate all ampersands to it's literal entities '&amp;' and back.
   *
   * I wasn't aware of this problem at first but it's important to understand why we do this.
   * At first you must know:
   * a) PHP's XML parser *translates* all entities to the equivalent char E.g. &lt; is returned as '<'
   * b) PHP's XML parser (in V 4.1.0) has problems with most *literal* entities! The only one's that are 
   *    recognized are &amp;, &lt; &gt; and &quot;. *ALL* others (like &nbsp; &copy; a.s.o.) cause an 
   *    XML_ERROR_UNDEFINED_ENTITY error. I reported this as bug at http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=15092
   *    (It turned out not to be a 'real' bug, but one of those nice W3C-spec things).
   * 
   * Forget position b) now. It's just for info. Because the way we will solve a) will also solve b) too. 
   *
   * THE PROBLEM
   * To understand the problem, here a sample:
   * Given is the following XML:    "<AAA> &lt; &nbsp; &gt; </AAA>"
   *   Try to parse it and PHP's XML parser will fail with a XML_ERROR_UNDEFINED_ENTITY becaus of 
   *   the unknown litteral-entity '&nbsp;'. (The numeric equivalent '&#160;' would work though). 
   * Next try is to use the numeric equivalent 160 for '&nbsp;', thus  "<AAA> &lt; &#160; &gt; </AAA>"
   *   The data we receive in the tag <AAA> is  " <   > ". So we get the *translated entities* and 
   *   NOT the 3 entities &lt; &#160; &gt. Thus, we will not even notice that there were entities at all!
   *   In *most* cases we're not able to tell if the data was given as entity or as 'normal' char.
   *   E.g. When receiving a quote or a single space were not able to tell if it was given as 'normal' char
   *   or as &nbsp; or &quot;. Thus we loose the entity-information of the XML-data!
   * 
   * THE SOLUTION
   * The better solution is to keep the data 'as is' by replacing the '&' before parsing begins.
   * E.g. Taking the original input from above, this would result in "<AAA> &amp;lt; &amp;nbsp; &amp;gt; </AAA>"
   * The data we receive now for the tag <AAA> is  " &lt; &nbsp; &gt; ". and that's what we want.
   * 
   * The bad thing is, that a global replace will also replace data in section that are NOT translated by the 
   * PHP XML-parser. That is comments (<!-- -->), IP-sections (stuff between <? ? >) and CDATA-block too.
   * So all data comming from those sections must be reversed. This is done during the XML parse phase.
   * So:
   * a) Replacement of all '&' in the XML-source.
   * b) All data that is not char-data or in CDATA-block have to be reversed during the XML-parse phase.
   *
   * @param  $xmlSource (string) The XML string
   * @return            (string) The XML string with translated ampersands.
