You are using the so called "pull" method in which you basically have everything in one template and use value-of to pull in bits of data. Which processor are you using, because I think that it should have worked anyway because $x should contain a root node for each included document, and so value-of select="$x//author2" should give you the string value of the first ,author2 element in any of those documents (although you don't have conrol over which document, if you do it like that) However the way I would normally do these things is the "push" method where you have lots of templates, so in this case <xsl:stylesheet version='1.0' xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform' xmlns:xinclude="http://www.w3.org/1999/XML/xinclude"> <xsl:output method="html" /> <xsl:template match="document"> <html> <body> <xsl:apply-templates/> </body> </html> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="xinclude:include"> <xsl:apply-templates select="document(@href)"/> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="author"> <h2><xsl:value-of select="."/></h2> </xsl:template> <xsl:template match="title"> <h1><xsl:value-of select="."/></h1> </xsl:template> and so on. just adding templates for whatever you need. Note that the template for xml include doesn't actually add anything to the output it just moves the context for the apply-templates over to the document specified.
