Chapter 14. External Style Sheets > External XML Style Sheets

External XML Style Sheets

The first part of this chapter shows how to link to style sheets from HTML documents. Most documents on the Web are HTML documents, and we expect this to be the case in the future. We also expect some new document formats to be developed for the Web. These are likely to be based on XML. Unlike HTML, XML-based documents will come with no conventions on how to display them and a style sheet will always be required. Therefore, work has been started to find a common way for all XML-based document formats to link to style sheets. So far, only the XML equivalent of HTML’s LINK element has been defined. For example, in HTML, you could use the LINK element like this:

<LINK HREF="/style/mystyle" REL="stylesheet" TYPE="text/css">
