Eh? Try this trivial example in Mozilla ... paste into two files

- dogs.xml ---------------------------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="dogs.css" type="text/css" title="dogs"?>
		<Breed>Basset Hound</Breed>
		<Breed>Blood Hound</Breed>

- dogs.css ---------------------------------------------------------
Family {
	margin-left: 10%;
Group {
	margin-left: 2em;
Family, Group {
	display: block;
	color: #000000;
	font-weight: bold;
Breed {
	display: list-item;
	list-style-type: square;
	color: #006600;
	margin-left: 2em;

I get a lot of raw sample data for prototyping in XML format, and a
lot of it stays that way :-)

The above example can also be melded into an XHTML page and all the
markup still works just fine though it doesn't match any actual DTD ...
