getting xsl:include to work in XT 19991105

I'm getting a "MalformedURLException: no protocol" error message output to 
System.out whenever I use xsl:include.  What's wrong with this scenario:

My "main" xsl file includes another xsl file and tries to access a variable 
that is declared in the included file.  The main xsl looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:transform xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8"/>
<xsl:include href="xt-test-include.xsl"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:value-of select="$xt-test-include-variable"/>

The included xsl file is named xt-test-include.xsl and lives in directory at 
Utility\com\aexp\advice\formatting\production xsl.  It looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:transform xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform/1.0">
<xsl:variable name="xt-test-include-variable" select="'Congratulations, you 
found me!'"/>

Before I invoke the XSLProcessor, I instantiate an InputSource for the xsl and 
send it setSystemId("c:\IBMVJava\ide\project_resources\Advice 
Utility\com\aexp\advice\formatting\production xsl\").  When I run the 
processor, I get the following line of output on my console:

java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: xt-test-include.xsl

The comment for method InputSource.setSystemId(String) says the system 
identifier is optional if there is a character stream (which is the way I'm 
using it), but "it is still useful to provide one, since the application can 
use it to resolve relative URIs...".  Obviously, my attempt to use 
href="filename" along with setSystemId(fileLocation) isn't what XT had in 

Can someone let me know how I need to use setSystemId() and xsl:include?
