Steps to reproduce
To reproduce this, create any XML file locally on a drive that links to a local XSL stylesheet in the same directory. Type the path using the file:/// syntax into the Edge browser. The browser will generate the error in the console and only display the XML file with the tags stripped out, not the correct transformation.
A sample XML and XSL file set has been attached.
The browser should be able to run the XSL transformation correctly and display the formatted output.

I think it is by design, it would be a security risk to allow reading arbitrary local files.
