The ususal way to include a second (or more) XML file in an XSLT transformation is by using the document() function. Are you unfamiliar with this function or is it not suitable for some reason you haven't yet explained?

Im sure theres a fairly straight-forward and obvious approach available. So Id like some suggestions.

I have written loads of .xsl files for transforming some .xml files. The result is a set of 2 separate .xml files (output from 2 separate .xsl files) on which Id like to carry out some comparisons.

Graphically for example the process is such:

Step 1 : Model1.xml --> Transf1.xsl --> Result1.xml

Step 2: Model2.xml --> Transf2.xsl --> Result2.xml

My main problem isnt how to compare Result1 and Result2 but how to start writing them. In which kind of file?

- Can I import these two files into one .xsl and work upon them? or
- Should I and can I write some <?xml-stylesheet href='Compare.xsl'.....?> in Result1.xml when generating it from Transf1.xsl ? Then only import Result2.xml in Compare.xsl ?

Could someone please advise me on the best approach. I need a solution that can be as piped as possible as all this will ultimately form part of one button on the GUI.
