only the first file is read in this case, and i guess it's a
macro file.

Because test1.wml does not contain input datas. So you should write
    wml -I test1.wml test2.wml
or better add in test2.wml
#include 'test1.wml'

Again, i see no reason to invoke wml this way.

PS: I did not understand your other post, could you send a simple
    example to explain what you want?
