stylesheet relative
XSLT 2.0 would allow you to write


But of course that doesn't help very much because you need a solution that
works in IE. Unfortunately I don't think it's possible: although the base
URI of a stylesheet instruction is part of the context in 1.0, it's
accessible only through the document() function.
