Hi there

I guess this question has been asked to death - so here I bring it up again.....

I have this XML page and right now there is an <about> tag that contains information the page name and copyright information.

However the copyright information contains something like 1998-2006 and so instead of going through each XML page to update the year, I would like to extract this whole <about> tag into another file, which each XML can then include. However the <about> tag also contains the module id, e.g. mEmployeeDetail.

So how should I do this then? I am new to XML and worse yet I'm maintaining someone's XML code.

The <about> is pretty straightforward so far, such as

Code:
<about 
         style="width:100%;
                  font-size:10pt;font-family:Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,Sans Serif;
                  font-weight:bold;
                  font-style:normal;display:'none';" >
    <span id="aboutlabel"
           title="Copyright 1995-2006 Something Ltd."
           style="position:absolute;top:165px;left:125px;
                     font-style:normal;
                     font-family:Verdana,Helvetica,Arial;
                     font-weight:normal;">
   Copyright 1995 - 2006 Something Ltd.
  </span>

  <span id="aboutlabel"
            title="Copyright 1995-2006 Something Ltd.""
            style="position:absolute;top:225px;left:125px;
                     font-style:normal;
                     font-family:Verdana,Helvetica,Arial;
                     font-weight:normal;z-index:1;">
   Module ID: mEmployeeDetails
  </span>
 </about>
And I hope to copy that into a separate file (xml) and pass in the ModuleID.

How do I even do that? BTW I have tried googling and I think my XML at work does not support things like xi:include (gosh, I don't even know what these are)

Thanks a lot
