The XML is being rendered.  It displays as nice syntax coloured, indented
XML.  Regardless of what the elements are, what namespace they're in,
what encoding the document is in.  OK, I don't *know* all these
things to be true, because I have not written any browser code,
but I've witnessed it.  And so far my experience holds for
application/xml, but not for any +xml media type.  So those browser
guys can only be pushed so far, apparently.

No, I don't think it is a CSS issue.  It is the fact that the links
aren't recognized by the browser parser.  I think!.
