Separate file from what?  You would have a single XSLT stylesheet
for the transformation and then mix XHTML, XInclude, and whatever
else you wanted in the input file.

Having said, that there's something very appealing about using
XSLT or XML Query as a Web templating language, and I've done
this myself for http://www.fromoldbooks.org/Search/ for example.


Do you have an example? I'm driving towards the idea of keep xhtml inside xsl files with imports for standard blocks, like "<xsl:call-template name="head"/>" etc.

The transformation would mainly be applying the xhtml-xsl file to an xml tree of dynamic data to populate the template.
