(1) Use the document() function to open the second (third, fourth, etc.)
source tree. This can be more or less pleasant, depending on how complex
those alternate inputs are.
(2) Use a multi-pass transformation: on step 1, process the first source
tree; on step 2, use as the source tree the transformed result of step
1; and so on. This is less complex than (1) for any given
transformation, but of course you have to balance against that the fact
that you've now got multiple transformations to manage. If you're using
MSXML to transform to (X)HTML this may not be an option at all. (But you
did say you're transforming to XSL-FO. In this case, the Apache
Project's Cocoon might be a real solid choice for you, as long as you
can live with the -- for now -- limitations of using FOP as the XSL-FO
