Hi Folks

    I have an xml file called "A.xml" and a corresponding "A.xsl".
Now in the file "A.xsl" I use document() to get the contents
of another file "B.xml" and there are templates in "A.xsl" that display
the contents of "B.xml".

   What do I have to do to apply the get the contents of "B.xml"
more that once. Currently I am calling document('B.xml') twice
from A.xsl. Is there anyother way to do this other than calling
it twice.

  The reason I am not interested in calling document() twice, is because
every time document is called, "B.xml" is read, parsed etc. and suppose
if B.xml is a very large file, doing it twice seems a waste of resources.

Any help or direction will be gladly accepted.
