Antonio,

You could use templates:

<xsl:variable name="xmldoc" select="document($xmluri)/Menus/Menu"/>

...
<xsl:apply-templates select="$xmldoc" mode="menu"/>
...

<xsl:template match="*" mode="menu">
  <!-- copies any elements -->
  <xsl:copy>
    <xsl:apply-templates mode="menu"/>
  </xsl:copy>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="text()" mode="menu">
  <!-- trims whitespace -->
  <xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/>
</xsl:template>

Of course, it works by applying a modification of the identity transform to
the node set you call in.

Cheers,
Wendell

I've solved my problem but i would like a more elegant solution, if
there is one...

Instead of having
<xsl:variable name="xmldoc" select="document($xmluri)"/>
<...>
<xsl:copy-of select="$xmldoc/Menus/Menu" />

i have now

<xsl:variable name="xmldoc" select="document($xmluri)/Menus/Menu"/>
<...>
<Menu>
<xsl:for-each select="$xmldoc/node()">
        <xsl:copy><xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/></xsl:copy>
</xsl:for-each>
</Menu>

that do the trick, but somehow i didn't like it very much.

Any more sugestions? Thanks.
