If you intermix writing sub-elements and attributes, any attributes that are written after the first sub-element are ignored/discarded:

<?php
$xml
->startElement('element');
 
$xml->writeAttribute('attr1', 0);
 
$xml->writeElement('subelem', 0);
 
$xml->writeAttribute('attr2', 0);
$xml->endElement();
?>

Outputs:

<element attr1=0>
  <subelem>0</subelem>
</element>

This is stupid, but the way it works as of PHP 5.2.4.
