multiple xml files
O.K. guys, I have an XML file that looks like this:


and an XSLT that looks like this:

<xsl:template match="movie">
<xsl:copy-of select="document(document('list.xml')/files/file)/ story"/>

In the past I have been applying an XSLT to an existing XML file using Oxygen. So I'd open up the file that I want to transform and then the XSLT would apply the transformation to that document and give me the resulting output. In this situation, there isn't an XML file to start with. Should I just open a blank XML file and do a transformation on it? Forgive my ignorance here.

If the argument to the document() function is a string containing a relative
URI, then it is interpreted relative to the base URI of the stylesheet
element in which the document() call appears.

So in layman's terms, if you say document('thing.xml') then you are
referring to a file in the same directory as the stylesheet.
