"/path/page.xsl" is a relative URI; you could use
http://localhost/path/page.xsl for an absolute URI. If you give a relative
URI, Saxon tries to resolve it relative to the base URI of the stylesheet.
In previous releases, if this was unknown, it gave you an error. In 6.2, it
defaults to the current directory. The best approach is to make sure Saxon
knows the base URI of the stylesheet, which you can achieve by using
setSystemId() on the source object when it is loaded, or by including an
absolute xml:base URI within the document itself.
