;-) Very funny. Let me rephrase: It is a common practise in Java
programs to dynamically load executable code based on runtime
information. How about that? However, don't ask me how "common
practise" is defined...

Yep, and the problem which I thought I had was that I didn't know
where I was. But as Mike Kay said in the other reply,

|The relative URI is interpreted relative to the stylesheet location, not
|relative to the current working directory.

So, I suppose it should work, if the style sheet compiler gets access
to the URL of the original style sheet and not some input stream
abstraction, a DOM tree or whatever.

How is a relative location interpreted if the location of the original
style sheet is unknown? Well, maybe I don't need to know that... just
thinking aloud.

Thank you very much for your help,
