> The remote source tei is like this :- > <figure rend="somepic" url="/images/image.jpg"/> Not that it changes your XSLT problem, but this is inappropriate TEI encoding of the information. If "somepic" is a description of the image, it belongs in a <figDesc> child of <figure>: <figure url="/images/image.jpg"> <figDesc>somepic</figDesc> </figure> (Also the url= attribute is not part of vanilla TEI P4, but extension of TEI to put this attribute on <figure> is almost ubiquitous.) > However, the image is remote to the document so the image will > still not appear.

Where is this remote host information? Since TEI P4 doesn't have an xml:base= attribute, I doubt it is there. Where is it stored, or how is it handed to your XSLT?
