XML CDATA tag within a CSS horizontal flyout menu script, not sure how to create external style sheet with it.

I am using this script to create a horizontal flyout menu:

There seems be some XML code in it, specifically:


and I am unsure how to work with this.  I took his exact example and tried to make the css an external file:

I thought maybe it was sort of like an if/then statement.  I kept the XML code in the html file, and created 3 different css files which replaced the blocks of css code in between the XML code.  But it isn't right.  Looks different in different browsers.  Mostly it doesn't apply any style at all.

I am not sure how to blend the XML and the external style sheet.

I emailed the author of the script directly and he gave me an example of the script in use via external css file.  Here it is for anyone interested:
