Mark,

I'm not exactly sure what effect you want to achive, but something like this
(which is part of XForms 1.0) might help.

The 'model' attribute lets you bind to any XForms Model in the containing
document:
<input model="firstModel" ref="a/b/c">...

Also, if you need to populate two things in parallel, you can use an XForms
Action:
  <setvalue model="secondModel" ref="z/y/x">literal value here</setvalue>

This example copies whatever gets entered in the <input> into a second
XForms Model.

I hope this helps.

Hi

Does that mean you can't achieve the same by some other means then?

All the best
