XInclude
XML Inclusions (XInclude) is a W3C Recommendation to allow inclusion of XML more different sources in a more convenient fashion than XML external entities. When used in conjunction with XPointer (Firefox supports a subset of it, and is used in the code sample below), XInclude can also target just specific portions of a document for inclusion. Firefox does not support it natively, but the following function aims to allow its use with documents passed into it.
