RE: [docbook] QUERY: URI convention in DocBook XSL Stylesheets

I have had success with both xsltproc and saxon on Windows 2000 using
'file:///C:/' to begin my absolute URI's in XSL files.  (FWIW, Emacs uses
'file:/C:/', but xsltproc fails on this.)

Subject: [docbook] QUERY: URI convention in DocBook XSL Stylesheets

This appears to be a recurring question. But, in reviewing the comments at, there does not appear to be a
clear answer.  The question is this: What is the proper form for specifying
a URI in a DocBook XSL stylesheet with respect to an xsl file located on
your local hard drive? Assume the following: (1) the operating system is
Windows XP Pro; (2) the xslt processor is (a) xsltproc or (b) Instant Saxon;
(3) the xsl file declares UTF-8 encoding; and (4) there is no network
