i read xml data from the tumblr api using curl and put it in an textarea on an html page.

<?phpfunction curl_get_contents ($url) {	$curl = curl_init();	curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);	curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);	$html = curl_exec($curl);	curl_close($curl);		return $html;}$aap = curl_get_contents("http://myblog.tumblr.com/api/read" );echo $aap;?>

PHP can only generate content at the start of the page. Once you've gotten the information from that page you can then decode it in PHP (preferred) and print it somewhere to be used by the Javascript or you can print the entire contents to a hidden page element and decode it with Javascript. So if the XML is in the wrong format then it's an issue with the page you are calling and you should refer to that page. The contents of a textarea exists only in Javascript which is client-side. Meaning the server doesn't know what you've inputed into it until you submit it to the server. So you would have to submit the contents first or use Ajax to submit the content a file that records the information to a file or database. Then on the page you are requesting the information you could have another Ajax request a file that reads and prints this information. Pages cannot directly communicate with one another so you will need to use some sort of medium to give the illusion that they are.If I'm not mistaken by what you are asking.
