=head1 NAME

XML::RSS::LibXML::MagicElement - Represent A Non-Trivial RSS Element

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  us XML::RS::LibXML::MagicElement;
  my $xml = XML::RSS::LibXML::MagicElement->new(
    content => $textContent,
    attributes => \@attributes
  );

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module is a handy object that allows users to access non-trivial
RSS elements in XML::RSS style. For example, suppose you have an RSS
feed with an element like the following:

  <channel>
    <title>Example</title>
    <tag attr1="foo" attr2="bar">baz</tag>
    ...
  </channel>

While it is simple to access the title element like this:

  $rss->{channel}->{title};

It was slightly non-trivial for the second tag. With this module, E<lt>tagE<gt>
is parsed as a XML::RSS::LibXML::MagicElement object and then you can access
all the elements like so:

  $rss->{channel}->{tag};  # "baz"
  $rss->{channel}->{tag}->{attr1}; # "foo"
  $rss->{channel}->{tag}->{attr2}; # "bar"

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new

Create a new MagicElement object.

=head2 attributes

Returns the list of attributes associated with this element

=head2 toString

Returns the string representation of this object. 
By default we use the "text content" of the found tag, but for XML::RSS 
compatibility, we use the concatenation of the attributes if no content is
found.
