Let me try to clarify my intention:

- given an XML file for which I don't have direct influence for the 
  markup / DTD used

- out of this XML file I want to generate in a *single* transformation 
  process two separate, completely different output files (method="text")

  <xsl:template match="oneelement">
    <!--  output for the "main" document -->

    <!-- output for second document
         this generates the second file     -->
    <xsl:document method="text" href="somefilename">
      <xslvalue-of select="content"/>

    <xsl:apply-templates select="anotherelement"/>    

  <xsl:template match="anotherelement">
    <!-- more output *appended* to main document -->
    <xsl-value-of select="..."/>

    <!-- here I want to append output to the second document
         but cannot find a way to append to already created
         file  because it gets overwritten here       -->

    <!-- this does obvioulsy not work!  ->
    <xsl:docmument method="text" href="somefilename">
      <xsl:value-of select="some content"/>


It looks like there is missing an attribute like "overwrite" (yes|no)
for <xsl:docmument>.

Of course I could run two separate transformation processes - but this 
isn't elegant...
