Re: temporary merge of multiple xml files for processi
Yours is the kind of problem that is *much* easier in two passes. In XSLT 1.0, I'd go so far as to say you can't do it without exslt:node-set(). In XSLT 2.0 you could use a temporary tree. Before you worked on them, you would first have to collect all the subelements into a single set, as you surmise, which makes it impossible in unextended 1.0. In any case, it's (in effect) an implementation of an "include" mechanism that you need. Your case might also be simpler than the general problem (for example maybe you can guarantee that none of your 'included' files include any others).
