      Description

      In case an XSLT file contains reference to any entities, and an entity resolver is used, the resolver is given a chance to look up in the catalog only after the original reference in the internet is consulted and fetched. A case may look like this:

      <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?>
      <!DOCTYPE transform [
      <!ENTITY % w3centities-f PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Combined Set//EN//XML"
      "http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/2007/w3centities-f.ent">
      %w3centities-f;
      ]>
      <xsl:transform version="1.0"
      ...

      For that case if no internet connection is available, a java.net.UnknownHostException is thrown by Xalan-J command line utility referencing "www.w3.org".
