jeni - thanks for the direction.

the "stand-alone component" could be xml, htm/html, shtml file.

currently, the way i "include" a "stand-alone component" is with hardcoding.
for example:

	<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"><!--#include virtual=
"/public/includes/about_side_nav.htm" --></xsl:text>


<xsl:value-of select="/folder name/component name" />

1.  is there a cool way of combining the output from separate xsl files into
one browser window?

2.  can you recommend an approach to a dynamic solution for "includes"?

thanks again,

Both of these elements are used to construct XSLT applications from
multiple stylesheet files.

If you want to include, say, a fixed header in the HTML page that your
XSLT is generating, I'd usually do it by putting the header in a
separate file and using <xsl:copy-of> and the document() function to
insert the content of that file into the result of the transformation:

  <xsl:copy-of select="document('header.xml')" />

Note that the file must be a well-formed XML document for this to

If that doesn't suit your requirement, perhaps you can give an example
of what you mean by "including stand-along components on a page".
