That would be pretty difficult seeing as how the above is just a bunch of text inside a node and XSLT does not handle text very well. However it is not difficult to write a css in xml format which is what I use in the solutions I build for XSL-FO. It is unfortunately something of an ugly but necessary hack, hence my desire to see it replaced by actual css support.
