Re: [xml-dev] XML and CSS

Even the way most browsers treat XML showing an indented XML tree, or
a webpage for RSS and ATOM xml news feeds, are not examples of styling
XML with CSS.

The browsers transform the news feeds with JavaScript and actually
transform XML to HTML. What looks like XML+CSS is in reality HTML+CSS.

We end up with the following conclusion: it is hard to find any
examples of importance of XML being styled with CSS to be displayed
directly in browsers.

Except for XML applications made for browsers like XHTML.

And when it comes to PRINCExml it seems that it mostly use CSS for
XHTML and HTML, or even for DocBook. PRINCExml can only style any XML
with CSS, if the XML is structured in a way that makes sense for
converting it to PDF directly. If the XML does not have such "layout"
structure, there must be some programming that can put it into place.
