   RE: [xml-dev] Merging 2 xml files into one file

I don't know if any Application Service Provider would provide such a
service (it's a joke! A joke!) but you could write an XSLT stylesheet that
has A.xml passed as its input, uses the XSLT document() function to read
B.xml, and has template rules that handle all the different elements in both
to convert them to HTML so that they show up in a browser. I just tried
something like this in IE 6.0, and to my pleasant surprise it worked.
