I have:

1) An xsl (first.xsl) which selects and copies elements from an xml doc (first.xml) to create a resulting xml doc(second.xml)

2) An xsl (second.xsl) which performs a transformation on the second.xml to create a web page (html tags)

is there any way to incldue the first transformation at the top of second.xsl file. I thought about using import or include but didnt think it was appropriate?

Nope, xsl:include and xsl:import won't work here since you are not combining the stylesheets, you are chaining them. (The result of the first serves as input to the second.)

Using the node-set extension function, you can create the functional equivalent of this *if* your two stylesheets' templates don't clash. (Modes are your friends.)

Or many processing environments provide other means of specifying that two transforms are to be pipelined like this. XSLT itself doesn't specify how this should be done.

Check your processor's docs.
