I tend to use a URIResolver for this sort of thing. The javax.xml.transform.Source interface does not define a mechanism for determining the source file location (there may not even be one) so the XSL transform has no way of knowing where the XSL file came from, thus can't find things relative to it.
On the contrary: Source has a method setSystemId(). Whether or not this is actually the location of the stylesheet, the value you supply is treated as the base URI of the stylesheet, and is used to resolve relative URIs within it.
