Nitpick: You need to pass the XSLT processor some data
in the same form an XML parser would do. You *can* write
a parser which reads CSS syntax and transforms them on the
fly into some SAX events, pretending you read
        <match><e class="sect">div</e></match>
instead of
   p, div.sect { font-size: 12pt, ...

(I don't claim the XML above is well designed).
