I always thought different about this.  Do you open and read alot of
XML files in a text editor?  Probably not.  You probably prefer to
read a pdf, html page, text file, TeX file, etc....

That IS a style.  Just as CSS makes things big bold and red or small
and green IS a style.  Even text scraping is a style ... you didn't
like it in HTML on Yahoo, you prefered it in XML on your PC.  You
changed the STYLE.
