Hi Michael,

$share is a path
 <xsl:variable name="SHARE" select="$xplconfig/descriptorroot"/>
 <xsl:variable name="xplconfig"

What I want to construct is a relative URI..
Anyway L aready had checkec, and in both situations they were constructing the
same string..

I already got some answers from Jon Gorman....
Going to check the hints he gave me

Thanks everyone

You don't say what $SHARE is. Are you constructing an absolute URI or a
relative URI? It shouldn't make a difference: whether you supply a string or
a result-tree-fragment as the argument to the document() function, it should
use the base URI of the stylesheet to resolve any relative URI. But I think
there are some XSLT processors that get this wrong. Try
document(string($file)); and check that you really are constructing the same
string in both cases.
