Most XML-aware browsrs support CSS for styling XML -- the mechanism for
doing so (a PI) is described at http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-stylesheet/,
which includes examples illustrating references to CSS style sheets.

However, each different document type will need its own style sheet,
tailored for the element types (names) specific to it. Thus there is no
way of building a 'generic' style sheet that works for all XML documents.

Hope this helps --
