Thanks for the reply Erik.
In a nutshell, you grasped what it is I'm trying to do, as in:

>If you're just trying to load a different properties

 ><property file="${}.properties"/>
>where is a property representing your machine name
>(perhaps from the environment COMPUTERNAME or HOSTNAME).

However, what I'd also said is:

I had already been using text property files for a while to do exactly
this, but I now want to use xml files for the same sort of thing with the
additional flexibility that xml provides. I would be able to do exactly the
same if it weren't for the fact that <property file=> and <xmlproperty file
=> behave differently.
