so if the current node has a <grfile> element child looking like
<gfile>../cgi-bin/xml/thisdatafile.xml</gfile> then
$xmlfile will be set to (the set of) gfile element nodes which are
children of the current node.


<xsl:variable name="datafile" select="document($xmlfile)"/>

should produce you a node set consisting of one root node for each
gfile element in your xmlfile node set.

the documenet associated with each of these document nodes will be the
document add the uri specified in the text of the gfile element, taking
relative URI relative to the URI of the stylesheet.
