Formatting XML with CSS

It is possible to format XML file to format with CSS as we format HTML files. We can write style definitions for XML in the same way we write stylesheet for HTML.
 
Below is an example of how to use a CSS style sheet to format an XML document:
 
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”ISO-8859-1″?>

<?xml-stylesheet type=”text/css” href=”xml_css.css”?>
