file list xml
If the argument to the document() function is a string containing a relative
URI, then it is interpreted relative to the base URI of the stylesheet
element in which the document() call appears.

So in layman's terms, if you say document('thing.xml') then you are
referring to a file in the same directory as the stylesheet.
