Another way to do this is by reversing the roles of the files by storing data as external general parsed entities and define the referenced entities in the document. dated.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE dated [ <!ENTITY datable SYSTEM "datable.xml"> <!ENTITY date "17/03/99"> ]> <dated> &datable; </dated> datable.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <datable timestamp="&date;"> blah blah </datable> This form of role reversal technicque can be quite powerful when used properly.
