Hi Daniel,

followed by xsltproc succeeds.

This is using libxslt2 on an ubuntu machine.

Package: xsltproc
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 1.1.15-1ubuntu1
Priority: optional
Section: text
Maintainer: Debian XML/SGML Group <debian-xml-sgml-pkgs@lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uncompressed Size: 168k
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.4-1), libgcrypt11 (>= 1.2.2), libgpg-error0 (>= 1.1),
         libxml2 (>= 2.6.22), libxslt1.1 (>= 1.1.15), zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1)
Description: XSLT command line processor
 XSLT is an XML language for defining transformations of XML files from XML to
 some other arbitrary format, such as XML, HTML, plain text, etc. using standard

 transformations.

The following bombs:

xsltproc fails to download the xml feed. Pulling the feed with
wget and running xsltproc succeeds:
xsltproc --param base \"'http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_world.rss '\"  --novalid /home/raman/emacs/lisp/emacspeak/xsl/rss.xsl    /tmp/cnn_world.rss
