Xsl import

Hello,
I am trying to pick appropriate xsl based on certain condition...following is what I was trying to achieve that and was running into an error. The following might not be a way to do this but I hope I'm able to convey the idea here.

Thanks,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:saxon="http://saxon.sf.net/" xmlns:fos="java.io.FileOutputStream" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
       <xsl:choose>
            <xsl:when test="CONDITION">
                  <xsl:import href = "first.xsl"/>
            </xsl:when>
            <xsl:otherwise>
                  <xsl:import href = "second.xsl"/>
            </xsl:otherwise>
      </xsl:choose>      
</xsl:stylesheet>

No you can't do that. If you check out the reference for xsl:import... http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#import   you will see a statement that says
The xsl:import element is only allowed as a top-level element. The xsl:import element children must precede all other element children of an xsl:stylesheet element

Can you give a bit more complete example of what you are trying to achieve? ie. what functionality is in those two .xsl files that you are trying to choose between. This may allow us to better provide you with a solution to do what you want.
