AFAIK, you need at least a XSL file to view a "raw" XML file on a
browser. When you access a file without a XSL style associated with it (e.g., you see only a plain XML

Generally, a XSL file is associated with a XML file using a line like

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

The CSS will be referenced inside the xsl file, not the XML.

Anyway, to add such line, first someone needs to write the XSL file.
