Most probably you do not have a direct internet connection and you need to set a proxy server. The browser seems to have the proxy set, you may look into its options to see the configuration.
If you invoke Saxon from command line then there are a couple of Java system properties that can be set from the command line to point to the proxy server and port, see

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 "";).

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

<xsl:value-of select="document('')"/>

unfortunately it results in a UnknownHostException. It looks as if it doesn't know '
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?
