How to embed css in xml?

Tags: html,css,,xml

Problem :

I am trying to apply an embedded bar-code font from my css to an xml file. The xml file produces order numbers that I need to display as bar-code.

This document goes directly to email where it then generates a sales' invoice.

This it what generates order numbers:

   <font face="barcode">
                <xsl:value-of select="$OrderInfo/OrderNumber" />


I've tried linking my css using both:

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="App_Themes/Skin_3/style.css" ?>

<link href="App_Themes/Skin_3/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>

Embedded font in css:

@font-face {
    font-family: barcode;
    src: url(Fonts/IDAutomationHC39M_FREE.otf)  format("truetype");

     font-size: 26px;

Solution :

HTML has a link element to link to external style sheets, but not every XML-based format will have such an element. If there is no suitable element, you can still attach external style sheets by means of the xml-stylesheet processing instruction like this:

<?xml-stylesheet href="my-style.css"?>

... rest of document here...

This processing instruction (PI) must come before the first tag of the document. The type="text/css" is not required, but it helps the browser: if it doesn't support CSS, it knows it won't have to download this file.

Just as with the link element of HTML, there can be multiple xml-stylesheet PIs and they can have attributes to set the type, medium and title.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> 
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="style.css"?>
