Hello and welcome,

I'm not quite certain of what you're asking.
Do you want to style an XML with the help of a CSS?

Regards,
Adrian

Hi,

The same CSS rules apply for XML as for HTML, but obviously adapted to the specific elements, attributes and content of your XML file. If you want to learn CSS I suggest starting with: http://www.w3schools.com/css/

To associate a CSS to an XML document you need to specify in the XML a processing instruction like this before the root element:

Code: Select all

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="mycssfile.css"?>

If you are using Oxygen you can check out some of its XML+CSS samples.
e.g. Oxygen/samples/personal.xml and Oxygen/samples/personal.css
personal.css has some custom CSS extensions specific to Oxygen, but these can be easily identified due to their different namespace prefix (oxy).
