I've been rolling around several ideas or approaches in my head, and none seem any more useful or "right" than another. I'm sure this is extremely objective but I'm looking for a close-to-definitive answer on the object oriented approach to large block string storage and output in PHP. Given the following example, how could I change my approach in a way that might cause Zeev Suraski to pat me on the back and say Mazel Tov (beside using HTML5)?
The general theme I'm going with in this example class is that on construction, html is stored in a variable via output buffer and then returned by a public method. When evaluating this code, consider that the html will not be static. Page title, description, keywords and the such will be subbed out with dynamic property references. My overall question is: In object oriented programming, ideally where should the output be stored? PHP's
DOMDocument class, however useful, doesn't really answer this question for me. Also in this instance, is there any best practice trade-off between using an output buffer and heredoc syntax? Thanks in advance for your guidance!
