I think you're looking for the xml-stylesheet processing instruction[0].
This processing instruction can be used for associating a number of
different types of stylesheets with a given XML document, including XSLT
stylesheets (although the examples in the Rec talk about CSS).  An XSLT
association might look like this:

  <?xml-stylesheet href="/some/stylesheet.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>

I know this is supported in Mozilla-based web browsers, and I think it
is also supported in IE.

Take care,
