No success Andrew. I am writing below codes just for review

   <xsl:variable name="extNode"
select="document('file:///C:/book-type/book_meta.xml')"/>

Trying to print somewhere

<xsl:value-of select="doc($extNode)/book-meta/book/@author"/>

book_meta.xml looks something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<book-meta>
    <book name="" chapter_label="" author="supress"/>
</book-meta>

Any suggestions what could be possibly wrong.
