The DocBook XSL Stylesheets do refer to global URLs.  As you've noticed,
it's often a good thing to not have to rely on these URLs (i.e. to be
decoupled from the network).  This can be done neatly using XML Catalog
technology.  Conveniently, Bob Stayton's venerable book "DocBook XSL:
The Complete Guide"[0] has a chapter[1] entirely devoted to this common
problem and its solution.  Let us know here if you need additional help
setting it up.

Take care,
