Subject: DOCBOOK: including elements with xpointers xincludes

I would like to include a specific element from one file in another 
file. For example. I have a glossary in which every entry has a shot 
definition, and perhaps a longer definition.  I want to pull the content 
of the short <glossdef/> into one of the chapters in my book. I've been 
attempting things such as:

<xi:include xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude";  

When I run xsltproc on it to generate the target.db, I get "XInclude: 
failed build URL". If I simply use ...#xpointer(id(/glossary/*) I get 
all the entries in the glossary pulled in where the xinclude is located. 
 Should I be able to do what I'm attempting?  What is the syntax for this?


Hann er vitrastr ásanna ok fegrst talađr 
ok líknsamastr, en sú náttúra fylgir 
honum, at enginn má haldast dómr hans.
