This is wrong:

What I meant to say was this:
<xi:include xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude";

I hope no one tried what I originally said worked.  The immediately 
previous snippet does pull in all the entries in the glossary.  I don't 
know how much of the of the xpointer functionality is working in 
xsltproc.  I have not found a great many helpful examples of using 
xpointers on the web.  This seems like a very powerful tool.  Are people 
using it?
