Hello David,

Ok, that is understood. But I think something like
document(@xlink:href/xpointer(id('mark'))) isn't possible, or am I
wrong? I would like it more to have only to 'pick up' the elements I
need from the target document and not the whole document. In my opinion
it would be more elegant doing it that way ;-).

That was not my intention :-). Perhaps someone can tell me about the
previously mentioned tools or provide a link or two.
