We need to set things up to not make cross-domain HTTP requests when the software is installed on a different domain than the blog. There are still some places where we do that and while it may have been OK ten years ago, we can no longer assume that's kosher.

Might want to look into either a symlinking mechanism or re-using that proxy script thing we already have.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Noticed this in an RSS feed, of all places. Go to in Chrome and notice that nothing renders (which is slightly weird - not 100% sure if it's the same issue). Open up the network inspector and notice that the XSL sheet is blocked because it's a cross-domain request.

Fixed the URLs to use the same kind of mechanism as scripts. Also turned off the default stylesheets since it turns out they don't actually work anyway.
