ther a many mistake

so you will start display a html site

1.
xml is not valid
there a no root tag

in xml allow one information about stylesheet

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="style2.xsl"?>

the last one win and the browse display this

you will xml directly display with css than use

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="style1.css"?>

but you wil a html site so use
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="display.xsl"?

the stylesheet define alltag eg html style sript

so we start
xml make valid

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- xml direkt with css 
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="style1.css"?>
-->
<!-- hmtl code is descript -->
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="display.xsl"?>
