shouldn't ss2.xsl have baseURL data2\ss2.xsl ? It behaves as it is data2/ss2.xsl,
or as if relative urls are not computed by removing the last component. The output
is below.

I would expect an error message (file not found), but instead, it finds what it
should not.

But (assuming the labeling of the two files in data2 were backwards) the output you get is what I do expect, because you'll see in your output that "../data.xml" shows "data 1" from the parent directory.

I'm not sure what you are seeing as being wrong in your example. It looks right to me.
