Hi Sal. Depends on how you want to do it. I recently wrote the
beginnings of an Xinclude processor on top of the System.Xml.XmlReader
base class in the .NET framework. It worked pretty good (well, it worked

I can see the need for XInclude outside Xslt and the work I did had no
impact on this. In fact, you just read the doc into an XmlReader derived
class and it does the including for you. Very convenient!!

If it was of interest to people, I'd be happy to look at finialising it
at some point and you can feel free to use/derive from it. Chris Lovett
from MS also did some Xinclude work at
/html/xml05292000.asp. However, the .Net architecture is really cool for
doing this kind of thing easily.

Are xslt processors required to use XML parsers that recognize and
implement xinclude ( If not, will they
when it becomes an official recommendation of the W3C? Do any processors
recognize it already?

By "recognize" I, of course, mean "implement" such that the referenced
document is merged into the including document.
