I am trying to combine to seperate XML documents that have the same
structure but different leaf nodes, e.g:
---File 1.xml---
--File 2.xml----

I want the output to be:

Preferably without hardcoding too much of the structure of the file
into the .xsl.

How about something like:

<xsl:template match="@*|node()">
		<xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

<xsl:template match="*[not(*)]">
	<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
	<xsl:copy-of select="$file2//*[not(*)][count(preceding::*) =

You would apply this transform to file1.xml and reference file2.xml
using the document() function.

You could speed it up by using a key for the lookup into $file2 as the
heavy using of the preceding axis would likely make this very slow.
