You need to define style so Mozilla knows how to render it. At least, 
that is how it works now. It might be worth submitting a bug report 
about styling documents using attributes from the XLink namespace by

I guess the renderer assumes that I want some sort of style. Not sure
why it does that though. (Note that although the psuedo-attribute is
required, it is purely advisory and therefore isn't really important.
Note also that text/xsl is just some IE hack.)

Well, I thought you meant that the Firefox "website priority list" was
pretty much the same to the sites you know and visit. That is why I was
surprised and emphazed the word "you". I later figured that I might have
misunderstood you and asked for some clarification.

I actually did say that. But you thought that Mozilla and Firefox were
not the same. Perhaps I should not have assumed you to know that, sorry
about that.

Not at all. Please read my explanation above.

Because it is easy to misunderstand people in an e-mail conversation.
