Probably the easiest way to do this is to write an XSLT to convert your
XML files into Greenstone's metadata.xml file format (have a look at one
in the Greenstone demo collection to see what they're like).
Greenstone will not download remote files to index them, but you can
link to remote files in the collection.
All the best,
