hi folks,
I have two xmls:

how would I link all the elements of personx.xml to Department.xml, I understand that you can use xslt. But that involves running xml transform from another application and producing a new xml file(correct?).
is there a way to link it statically? Persons.xml doesn't have to have the root element.

You can "import" the persons.xml document by specifying an ENTITY and referencing it with &MyPersonsDoc;

Thanks. But I want to use xml schema instead of dtd, and entity has to be declared within a dtd. IS there any other way?
I agree. Here's the link:
