I have created a site using a combination of static HTML and XML (to make my site more dynamic). I want to know if XML can call or import data from other sites (namely headlines, articles etc). I then want my XSL to re-format this information and then display on my site.

Can this be done and if so Does anyone one have an External DTD or or source code for this??

Hi,

XML it's often used for this type of solution. One great example is Slashdot that allows anyone to get an XML file with their news (check out the code section) out of their system.

But I don't think that there is a common standard (yet?), so, you will probably have different a different XML file, with a different DTD, per site... and you need to get in touch with them to understand if that is possible.
