This is a bug in PassiveTeX.

Does your document contain lang="de" on root element? This information
is passed to TeX in order to switch to correct hyphenation patterns.

url(...) is correct syntax for URLs in FO. PassiveTeX currently does not
handle this syntax. You must customize newer stylesheet or wait for a
while. In a future XSL stylesheets might contain special treatement of
this for PassiveTeX. Better solution would be to fix this directly in
PassiveTeX (any time schedule for new PassiveTeX release Sebastian?).
