Thank you! I had initially been using the document function with a URI as Michael suggested but ran into a race condition in the wild (not to mention some very odd caching). Dimitre's suggestion of parking the nodeset in a variable before inclusion works well.

(That's all that document('') is doing). A more user-friendly way that does not require remembering all those file-names (which, btw could change in time) is to have in every stylesheet a global variable with easy to remember name: <xsl:variable name="vdocThisStylesheet" select="document('')"/> Then, this document is accessible within every other stylesheet of the import tree by simply: $vdocThisStylesheet -- Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev --------------------------------------- To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all.
