Ah, I was hoping that $id represents the name of only one element. No, you can't do this, unless you avail yourself of a Saxon extension that allows you to evaluate an XPath expression at runtime: http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/extensions/functions/evaluate.html -----Original Message----- From: Greg Fausak [mailto:lgfausak@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, July 16, 2008 7:23 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: [xsl] multiple input document question I am trying to allow the first document to supply a path to the second document. For example, all @menu elements from the first document have an attribute @id. That could be /complete/xpath/here. So the concatenation I'm looking for in that example is document('f1.xml')/complete/xpath/here, which does work when the xpath is not a variable.
