That would be pretty difficult seeing as how the above is just a bunch
of text inside a node and XSLT does not handle text very well. However
it is not difficult to write a css in xml format which is what I use in
the solutions I build for XSL-FO.

It is unfortunately something of an ugly but necessary hack, hence my
desire to see it replaced by actual css support.
