XML - XSL Stylesheet references another URL Access Denied

I just ran accross an interesting issue.

When generating an XML file in ColdFusion with an associated xsl style sheet reference in the xml head -= in Internet Explorer 7 I was getting this Error:
<link href="" type="text/xsl" rel="stylesheet">

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Access is denied.

The href attribute was pointing to a generic URL that was not the same URL as the file was being served up from. IE did not like this.

Once I changed this to be cgi.server_name instead - it worked as expected.

Firefox didn't care one way or the other - it rendered the file just fine, regardless of whether the xsl was on a different URL that the XML file was being served up on.

Wonder if this is deemed as some security breach?? Strange indeed.

I just do it, as you can see...viagra online. But why there're some places do not take them as it, because the spam or there's some other reason ? or because the broswer ?I use chrome and I never had that problem.
