Readme for ebay_de.php

Caution: There are some auctions, where this script does not work properly!
Please see the ebay_topangebote.php script. There are always some auctions
in between that do not work. Ebay_de does not return proper results in all
cases. Ebay_de.php worked fine for all auctions that my wife created for me
until now.

Hint: If you have trouble reading your auction data with ebay_de.php, let 
your wife enter the auction items into eBay.

1.) Include the class file in your script:

    include 'inc_ebay_de.php';
2. ) Create an instance of ebay_de (make an object)  
    $ebay = new ebay_de( '3619880818' );
The number in parantheses is the eBay auction number. 
You find the number in your eBay-url
it is located after the string "item="
3. ) Use the function showdata() to show the significant data:

The function showdata can take 3 parameters:

 - a class name for the cells <td>
 - a class name for the header cell <th>
 - a target name

by default all parameters are empty. If you want to use the class names
you have to define a <style type="text/css">...</style> section in the 
<head> of your page.

Here is an example of the classes used in the page
where I promote a program:

<style type="text/css">
    font-size: x-small;
    color : navy;
    background-color: #ffffe8;
    font-size: small;
    color : navy;
    background-color: #ffffe8;
    font-weight: bold;

I use this classes with shodata() like this: 

  $ebay->showdata('smalltd', 'smallth', '_blank');
'_blank' is not a class but a special target name for a new browser
