XSL FO spec prescribes that relative URLs within the doc should be
resolved with respect to the location of the document. For the cases
when the source document has no systemId (i.e. it was created in
memory) we provide special facility - BASE property that defines basic
directory for such a files. As it is clearly stated in "XEP User
Guide", it's applicable only for the files without systemId.
There is another feature that allows you explicitly define base
directory for the URL resolution inside given FO file - it is xml:base
property. This property makes effect no matter if systemId is present
or not. Setting its value using XSLT stylesheet parameter at the
transformation stage proved to be quite convenient.
