Embedded XML/XSL documents

Does xml/xsl support nested remote documents?  For example:
    <?import SRC=""/>
    <?import SRC=""/>
Such that the processing of Root would cause the loading of Left and Right, along with their associated style sheets.
The use case for this is for a web site with a universal format.  Say, a border on the left with a set of links like a main menu.  That could be the left child.  The right child would be the individual content for a particular page.  Thus, when your 'menu' changes you only need to change a single document instead of every page in your site.
Is this possible?  What command should I look at in the spec?  Is this supported by any xml/xsl parsers?  (IE5, LotusXSL...)
I apologize for asking a question that the spec could answer.  I have skimmed it but I do not recall such a command.
Thanks in advance,
Russell Allen.
