You need to use a processing instruction like the one below:
<?xml-stylesheet href="style.css" type="text/css"?>

Where the value of the href is a URI pointing to your stylesheet.  It goes in
the prolog (after the <?xml?> declaration but before the first element).  You
can also add a title and rel pseudo-attributes to identify further style sheet
properties, though applications don't seem to have caught on to that.

See the proposed recommendation (still subject to change) at:

It works fine with both IE5b2 and Netscape's Gecko.
