The example below fails to run right.  If there are 2 'CueID' elements, it works.  If there are 1 or 2 non-CDATA CueID elements, it also works.

Reproduce code:
$raw_xml = '<TopLevel><Cues><CueID><![CDATA[123]]></CueID></Cues></TopLevel>';
$xml = @new SimpleXMLElement($raw_xml);
$cues = (array)$xml->Cues;
$cues = (array)$cues['CueID'];

if ($cues)
{  foreach ($cues as $c)
   {  echo "got $c<BR>";
{  echo "SHE BROKE!";

Expected result:
Should print

Actual result:
SHE BROKE is printed

The reproduce code is unnecessarily complicated and, I believe, incorrect. Nodesets/nodes should not be cast as arrays, and if you don't, it works as expected.

Reproduce code:
$raw_xml =

$TopLevel = simplexml_load_string($raw_xml);

foreach ($TopLevel->Cues->CueID as $CueID)
	echo $CueID, "\n";

Expected result:

Actual result:
