Could you please tell me more about those options.
Specifically about, using an URIResolver which returns the
DOM tree to the document request in the stylesheet.

As of now, I have been using it as,
merge.xml is as,
   <merge xmlns="";>

Now I have been using libxslt. In which I do it as, (there is some more
behind the scenes, but just for information).
        cur = xsltParseStylesheetFile((const xmlChar *)"merge.xslt");
        doc = xmlParseFile("merge.xml");
        res = xsltApplyStylesheet(cur, doc, params);

You could supply the two input DOMs to the stylesheet as parameters, and
replace the calls on document() by references to the parameters.

Alternatively you could use the stylesheet unchanged, and write a
URIResolver that returns the DOM tree in response to the document request
for file1 or file2.
