Subject:[saxon] Bug: Abnormal cases of relative URIs not supported by resolve-uri
From:Christoph LANGE (

Dear Michael,

sorry, I just filed a bug on SourceForge ( without first posting it here. So here it is again:

One of the "abnormal cases" of relative URI solution is not handled correctly. According to RFC 3986, section 5.4.2, resolve-uri('../../../g', 'http://a/b/c/d;p?q') is supposed to return 'http://a/g', but in Saxon (Java) it returns 'http://a/../g'.

Background why this is relevant for me: My Saxon/XSLT-based XML->RDF extractor Krextor fails on test case 0114 of the W3C RDFa test suite (

Cheers, and thanks,
