I have an XML document with a series of <image> elements. They have href
attributes that reference svg files. For each of these <image> elements, I
want to open the corresponding svg file and copy some information from my
source document to the svg file. So while the stylesheet is processing one
document, I want to be able to change the other documents. Is this possible
with XSLT? Any pointers would be appreciated.

In pseudo-code I would approach this as:

for-each image result-document href=new directory and name created from image/@href apply-templates mode=modify select=document(@href in old directory) with-param tunnel=yes name=info select=image information

  match=everything mode=modify
      apply-templates select=@*,node() mode=modify

  match=item-to-change-in-SVG mode=modify
    param name=info tunnel=yes
    change the item using the image information

I hope this helps and isn't too cryptic. It processes your documents from a source directory to your new target directory (since you can't overwrite a document that is being read).
