Wouldn't that interrupt,  the "Cascade", import order, whatever?

So, if you want to treat the <html> root node of an XML file the thing to do
would be to insert an xml-stylesheet
processing instruction  <?xml-stylesheet type="text/css"
...  I'm not sure about Gecko but Modzilla, Opera, Amaya or even IE have no
problem with that.
