Hi Bill,
Thanks for your help. I found some information about a default.xsl
that internet explorer uses to display an xml file.
For instance, when I write an xml file, and click on it with explorer.
It uses a default.xsl with expanding and collapsing, what I wanted to
do to customize that with my own colors and etc.

Thanks for your help.
