Default compare two xml documents

I am converting from one XML file to another XML file using XSLT. The content is the same, I am just renaming some of the tags.
How can I compare the content only between 2 XML files. I want to make sure no content is lost between both conversion.

Any ideas, please.

Since the string value of a document node is the concatenation of all the text nodes, you could just do a string compare between the document nodes, i.e. string($doc1) = string($doc2)
