PHP Simple HTML DOM - Get text inside <td> tag

So I have this .html file that I have to analyze. In that file I have lines like this one:

<tr>
<td colspan=1 rowspan=1 bgcolor=#ffffff align=left valign=top>
<font size=1 face="Tahoma" color=#000000>
<nobr>
240,0000
</nobr>
</font>
</td>

<td colspan=1 rowspan=1 bgcolor=#ffffff align=left valign=top>
<font size=1 face="Tahoma" color=#000000>
<nobr>
340,0000
</nobr>
</font>
</td>
</tr>


What I need to get is 240,0000 , 340,0000 and so on. I have tried something like this:

// Create DOM from URL or file
$html = file_get_html('File.html');

foreach($html->find('td') as $element)
echo $element->text. '<br>';


Doing it this way I don't get the text I want to get.

How can I make reference to the text inside tag? So I can get the values.

Answer

Nothing like $element->text Use $element->plaintext

foreach ( $html->find('td nobr') as $element ) {
    echo $element->plaintext . '<br>';
}
