grouping multiple xml files in one file
I am trying to merge thousands of article into one xml file. each of the articles is only one line, and they are organized in folders.
for example, folder A has (1.xml, 2.xml, 3.xml...50.xml) and
folder C(has weather51.xml, travel52.xml...etc).
any help/ideas/suggestions/existing stylesheet that handles similar cases would be very helpful.

Could u please post the input & output xml file...

the input files have an XML file with a header and an article:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE article SYSTEM "article_demo.dtd">
<article><para>whatever the article says</para></article>

This XML file is in a folder which is a subfolder of another folder.
what I am trying to do is remove the header from each article and put the article content from all article XML files into one file ordered alphebatically.

Saxon's implementation of the XSLT 2.0 collection() function allows you to retrieve all the XML files in a directory structure. There's nothing equivalent to this in XSLT 1.0. You could write a shell script that creates an XML document containing a list of the files to be processed, and your transformation could then access these files using the document() function.
