Can some one please shed some light on include and import,

These stylesheet maintenance facilities are considered only at the time the stylesheet is read by the XSLT processor, and everything in this area is finished before the source XML is examined in any way.

what I was thinking I could do with either one of those was on these lines

some function(){

I'm assuming you mean a template here, and not a function, since XSLT isn't used as an imperative programming language.

 print some stuff
 print some more stuff
 call include or import here and get them print some

This is an inappropriate use of <xsl:include> or <xsl:import> ... if you look at the Recommendation you will see they are only top-level constructs.

 and then print some more stuff here

Is it possible to get functionality on the above lines?

Using <xsl:call-template> will add to the result tree the processed template as defined by a named <xsl:template>.

I hope this helps.
