If the stylesheet is calling the unparsed-text() function then the simplest
way to use it without change would be to register an UnparsedTextResolver,
which responds to the request for a particular URI by returning a StringReader
for the resulting text.

Alternatively, it would be very easy to modify the stylesheet to reference a
stylesheet parameter instead of calling unparsed-text().
