You are right, that does work, but it is not what xsl-url is about:
(see http://www.stamm-wilbrandt.de/en/xsl-list/xsl-url/#listings)


The idea of xsl-url is to have
- one data file (cdcatalog.xml)
- one stylesheet (cdcatalog.xsl) referenced by that data file
- many different files cdcatalog.1.xsl, cdcatalog.2.xsl, ...
  just "referencing" the data file and the stylesheet (indirectly,
  via cdcatalog.xsl.xsl).

This has the advantage that any change in the data file (cdcatalog.xml)
is immediately visible to all referencing data files, and each data
file may pass in any information (the query string in the samples)
without any side-effect -- and this with pure XSLT ...


If embedding the data file into the transformation all files
(cdcatalog.1.xsl, cdcatalog.2,xsl, ...) would have to be modified and
are difficult to keep in sync.

If you reverse the method and include your data in the xsl:stylesheet
(example below) it will work with all browsers. Remarks:
- tested with IE 6, Firefox 3.5, Opera 9.6.
- the PI would work also with an empty href (exept IE)
- the file embedd-test3.xsl was served with application/xml
