Re: Transforming multiple XML files into one file

How would I do something like that? <xsl:copy-of select="(document('file1.xml')|document('file2.xml')|document('file3.xml'))/story"/> or if it's more convenient have a list.xml that looks like <files> <file>file1.xml</file> <file>file2.xml</file> <file>file3.xml</file> </files> then you can co <xsl:copy-of select="document(document('list.xml')/files/file)/story"/> in xslt2 you can use the collection() function which essentially automates (and hides) the generation of the list.xml file, but in XSLT1 you need to have this file list to hand either by making it manually or 9for example) modifying a directory listing. Some web service setups have an option of supplying a listing in XMl format so sometimes you don't need to make an actual file list xml file, just use an http URI pointing at the directory. David
