  It is in section 6.4 of the December 1996 CSS 1 specification:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1

Yes but why on earth is the syntax of CSS carried over as well as the
value (ie the URI ref itself).  everywhere else a CSS construct is 
copied into XSL, XML syntax is used, and here an XML attribute would be
the natural syntax not some pseudo function syntax. If I recall
correctly, last time there was a thread on this (before REC) the answer
was related to using URI references in shorthand attributes where they
haven't got a whole attribute to themselves. But since I think shorthands
are one of the less desirable aspects of XSL, I don't really think they
can be used as a justification of anything, and certainly not of
uri(...).
