First establish whether doc() is returning a document. If it is, then you are processing the document incorrectly (and it's nothing to do with HTTP). If it isn't, then you've got some configuration issue.

OK this is a long shot, but the endpoint gives me the correct response

saying it couldn't find any records.

I've escaped the only apostrophe in the http call. Is there any reason
why I should be getting a different response when calling via XSLT?

This is a classic gotcha - your root matching template will endlessly
'loop' as you apply-templates to document node returned by the doc()

The solution is to do select="doc('http://blah')/*" or use modes if
you need to handle the document node.
