Upping the points may draw more attention...

Why not use an html page or an HTA to merge the two? (IE5 client side or XSL server side)

I was not fishing for more points (I got enough ;-)
I do not quite understand what you are trying to do, in what environment and I am not sure I can answer (or that one xml file can include another)

you can do that by using external entities.
In your DTD for the template.xml you have to add:
<!ENTITY try1 SYSTEM "http://www.abc.xyz/TRY.xml">

or if it local then:

<!ENTITY try2 SYSTEM "TRY.xml">

once this done then your template.xml can contain the reference to that entity:

<P> .... </P>
&try1;
<P> .... </P>

1. minimum points are considered 50
2. Are you sure you do not force xml to be a sort of database?

With XSL you could extract a part of the xml, but your WOULD have to load the complete ile to do it...

Do you control the original XML file? Ff you do you might consider making that paragraph (or all paragraphs) to be external entity and the just reference the one you want in your second template.
If you don't then it all depends on the task and tools that you use. As mplungjan said, you can use XSL to do the job. I prefere other (faster) ways to o task like that, by using specialized markup languages s.a. OmniMark (http://www.omnimark.com) which has the fastest parser from them all and 10 years of experience of dealing with SGML and later HTML/XML.
What are you trying to do and where? Is this template is being generated on the server or on the client or does it goes to databse alltogether. Give sm emore details.

I do this in IE5:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT>
function initPage() {
   if (isError(xmlID.parseError)) return;
   divID.outerHTML = xmlID.transformNode(xslID.documentElement);
}
// --></SCRIPT>
</head>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFCC" TEXT="#000000" onLoad="initPage()">
<DIV ID="divID"></DIV>
<XML SRC="xxxx.xml" ID="xmlID"></XML>
<XML SRC="yyyy.xsl" ID="xslID"></XML>
</body>
</html>

For other browsers you can transform on the server into html

Your entities should be a XML sniplets and not complete XML docs, so they should not have DOCTYPE declarations. In your code above you also try to declare the same entity twice. I thik something like this will work for you:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE root
[
<!ELEMENT root(#PCDATA)>
<!ENTITY try1 SYSTEM "http://www.abc.xyz/TRY_1.xml">
<!ENTITY try2 SYSTEM "http://www.abc.xyz/TRY_2.xml">
]>
<root>
Trying to pull the first file &try1; - Done with the first file.
Trying to pull the second file &try2; - Done with the second file.
</root>
