Is it possible to compare 2 XMLs and get difference out with the help of XSLT?

For instnace
XML1
<Employees>
<Employee>
<Id>101</Id>
<Name>John</Name>
<Employee>
<Employee>
<Id>102</Id>
<Name>Rambo</Name>
<Employee>
<Employees>


XML2
<Employees>
<Employee>
<Id>101</Id>
<Name>John</Name>
<Employee>
<Employee>
<Id>103</Id>
<Name>Brett</Name>
<Employee>
<Employees>

XMLDiff
<Employees>
<Employee>
<Id>101</Id>
<Name>John</Name>
<Employee>
<Employee>
<Id>102</Id>
<Name>Rambo</Name>
<Employee>
<Employee>
<Id>103</Id>
<Name>Brett</Name>
<Employee>
<Employees>

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

I wouldn't call the third document the "difference" of the first two. I'm not exactly sure how you would display the difference, but that isn't it. It's more like the union of the two documents. So you might want to clarify your requirements before looking for implementations of those requirements.
