[xsl] document() function refuses http adresses

Subject: [xsl] document() function refuses http adresses

According to the WROX XSLT Programmers Reference of Michael Kay (2000 version) you should be able to use http addresses as a parameter of the document() function (see page 442, where mr. Kay uses the example "http://www.wrox.com/booklist";).

However in one of my stylesheet I try to use the following command:

<xsl:value-of select="document('http://xml.ascc.net/schematron/schematron1-5.sch')"/>

unfortunately it results in a UnknownHostException. It looks as if it doesn't know 'xml.ascc.net.
I am able to use the http address in IE. I also tried it with other http addresses but the result stays the same.

I also tried this in XML-Spy (native XSLT processor) but also this wasn't succesful.

What am I doing wrong?
