How about trying to copy the contents of each document into a varibale and then nodesetting that? I have tried to do someting like this but it complains about the filename or extension being too long:

<xsl:variable name="index">
<xsl:variable name="nsindex" select="xx:node-set($index)"/>

<xsl:variable name="oldvariable">
<xsl:copy-of select="document($nsindex/Best_Practices)" />
<xsl:copy-of select="document($nsindex/Business_and_Technical_Education)" />
<xsl:variable name="newvariable" select="xx:node-set($oldvariable)"/>

<xsl:key name="cat-by-firstocc" match="link" use="substring(title,1,1)" />

<!--Create the two divs and place content inside-->
<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:for-each select="document($newvariable)/child::*">
		place the select key statment inside here?

The key() function locates nodes within the document containing the context
node. You have to know which documents you want to search, it's not capable
of searching across documents.
