Parsing XML

I have been looking around the internet for tutorials on how to parse information in an XML file and output it in a manner of my choosing and design. I found the two tutorials on this website titled [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=4][COLOR=#003366]XML Parsing using PHP {Easy} [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]and the intermediate one as well.

The tutorials were wonderful, however they lack something important that i need. They show how to use the information included between start and end tags, but not the information inside the tags themselves. I have little to no information in between tags, however almost all of my data is stored inside a tag itself with no accompanying end tag. Here is an example of one of the shorter tags in my file:

<members memberCount=“35”>

I’m sure by now you can understand what it is that I’m asking for and by the example you can see the sort of data needed to extract from the tag. Any help on this or even the URL of a tutorial that would help me with this would be very much appreciated.
