This statement relates to a function that retrieves the URI for the
stylesheet and the xml file, and I think it's not so hypothetical ... I work
with the MSXML parser and have most of my xml files in-memory as I use XML
as as a format for  communicating between objects. If you have such a
function then you can test for the presence and prevent errors from

The question is how do you _know_ that no URI is present ???
