First you link your XML document to external CSS stylesheet:
<?xml-stylesheet type=�text/css� href=�myStylesheet.css� ?>
And then, if you have an element with "myElement" name, for example, you can link it with CSS rules as
{ background-color: white;
border-color: blue;
font-size: 80%
I read that it's also possible to use internal CSS:
<?xml-stylesheet type=�text/css� href=�#myStylesheet� ?>
<CSS id=�myStylesheet�>
myElement { some rules here
but it did not work for me...
