That's correct. This is not a problem with your XSLT processor.
It is behaving correctly.

This is more likely an incompatibility between the encoding that
is used by your filesystem for storing filenames, and the way that
whatever handles "file:" URLs on your system goes about decoding
the %xx sequences in the URL. (I doubt that it is Apache doing this;
it is probably your browser's internal URI resolver).

What operating systems are you using?

And did you mean to use "file:" URLs instead of "http:"?

Even if you use http, Apache will probably assume ISO-8859-1 based
%-escaping in the Request URI, and you'll have the same problem,
though you might be able to use mod_rewrite and an external URL
rewriting engine to get it into the format you need.
