You are not resolving the JS file during transformation. This just puts the
script element in your output. The JS file has to be relative to the document or
hanging off the document root.

The easiest way to handle it, if served from a webserver, is to set the JS @src
to be root relative:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/js/web.js" />

Or if you need it offline you need to build the document relative path to the

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"
src="{$relative-context}web.js" />
where $relative-context is something like ../../js/web.js. The ../'s will be
determined by the position the transformed HTML relative to the JS file.
