Hi all,

A client is looking to have weather conditions on their web site. I know
there are easier solutions (that are less flexible), but I am trying to use
MagpieRSS[1] to parse a Yahoo! Weather RSS feed and only display select

It was easy to get MagpieRSS to parse the feed, but it seems as though it is
ignoring some of the nodes/elements. Particularly, there are
yweather:conditions and yweather:forecast elements with attributes containg
temperature and other information I want and they just aren't showing up at
all in the MagpieRSS object that magpie creates from the feed.

You can see a print_r of the object here
You can see the full RSS feed here

Any suggestions on what is causing these elements to be left out would be

Thanks a lot,
