I don't believe you can do this from inside a single XSL file. xsl:import/include are processed at compile time, so your included/imported file would have to be complete before the stylesheet was compiled.

You could use a two pass approach, where you generate the XSL in the first pass, and then use the generated XSL file to process your XML.

Perhaps if you provide an example of the problem you are trying to solve someone could help with an alternative to dynamic call-templates?

Subject: [xsl] Process output from imported stylesheet?

Goodday, this is my first post and i've spent the night looking through the 
FAQs, archives and elsewhere to no avail. Appreciate any pointers!

I'd like to be able to control which named templates to call, so I read the 
template names from an XML file. Since it's not possible to call-template 
dynamically with params or variables (xsl:choose enumeration would be my 
last resort), I'd like to modify the principal stylesheet before running it. 
Is it possible to loop the results of the XML file and use xsl:element to 
create xsl:call-template in a secondary XSL, then have the primary XSL 
import or include it, thereafter process the output as it was embedded at 
runtime? Have tried but all efforts came up blank, I'm using Sablotron.

Thank you.
