css and namespaces
Where is the proper relationship between CSS1 and Namespaces
defined/codified?  Has it been?

Suppose you have an xml file like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="coll.css" type="text/css"?>

<collection xmlns:nss="http://www.n-topus.com">
  <nss:item type="stamp">

and you provide a stylesheet, coll.css, like so:

collection {
  display: block;
item {
  display: list-item;
  float: none;
  border: none;
num {
  display: block;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: blue;
  text-decoration: underline;
  cursor: pointer;
country {
  display: block;
  font-style: italic;
year {
  display: block;
  font-family: monospace;
  font-size: 8pt;

The observed behavior is that IE5.0 ignores the stylesheet
and just runs the text content of the file together,
while Mozilla 6 recognizes it.  Both ignore the stylesheet
if the stylesheet selectors include the prefix, even though
one might have expected that a CSS stylesheet will adopt the
XML 1.0 view of QNames, not the Namespace view.

Clarifications badly needed.
