Does this, "show the details of the links with topfive attribute", mean that you want to place each of the links with a "topfive" attribute from each of the six files into the HTML output document? If so, what is to appear in the text part of the link (the text that appears between the anchor tags) and where do we find the URL (the value of the "href" attribute of the anchor tag)?

If not, maybe you could give us an example of what it means.

Im am still a bit confused and not sure if the document() function does 
apply to this problem or not?
I ll go into a bit more detail, I have an xsl which processes the xml 
homepage.xml to produce homepage.html. I have some links across 6 xml files 
which i would like to show in the homepage.html ouput.
homepage.xml has a different structure to the other 6 xml files. However th 
eother 6 xml files have the same strtucre, e.g.:
<link topfive="true"></link>
<link topfive="true"></link>
I would like to show the details of the links with topfive attribute in 
homepage.html, in the case above, i would only like to show the details of 
the 1st link from one.xml and the 2nd link from three.xml, I thought i might 
have to use document() to gather the 6 xml files togetehr and then search 
for links with topfive attribute but i dont know how to do it?
the xsl below is processed with homepage.xml to produce homepage.html:

<xsl:template match="root">
<xsl:apply-templates select="category" />

<xsl:template match="category">
<xsl:if test="count(ancestor::*)=1">
do this
<xsl:if test="count(ancestor::*)=2">
do that
<xsl:if test="count(ancestor::*)=3">
<h2><xsl:value-of select="name" /></h2>
