Sorry for not clarifyingl, does that work for XSLT 1.0, if not what does.

The example below shows you get the base URI of the stylesheet when using XSLT 1.0. I've needed this when working with the OASIS specification stylesheets.

I hope this helps.

~/t/ftemp $ pwd
~/t/ftemp $ xslt ihe.xml ihe.xsl

Stylesheet URI: file:/Users/admin/t/ftemp/ihe.xsl

~/t/ftemp $ cat ihe.xsl
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE xsl:stylesheet
<!ENTITY static-base-uri SYSTEM "" NDATA xsl>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

<xsl:output method="text"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:variable name="static-base-uri">
    <xsl:for-each select="document('')">
      <xsl:value-of select="unparsed-entity-uri('static-base-uri')"/>
Stylesheet URI: <xsl:value-of select="$static-base-uri"/>

~/t/ftemp $ cat ihe.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
