No. Namespace URI's are just strings. They do not have to point to an existing
host or document. In the case of an xsl stylesheet, they must only match the
namespace URI's for prefixes in the document you are processing. Since these
URI's are strings, these must match perfect. I've once spent hours and hours
searching for the cause of a problem, where an extra slash in one of the
namespace URI's, made the match of URI's fail.

My guess is that you cannot reach w3c because of some network problem, but
that this network problem is causing errors somewhere else.
