Abstract: Style sheets have been proposed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as a means for separating presentation and content in World Wide Web documents, and they are now widely used and generally popular. In this paper we use the same idea for an XML interchange format proposal for high-level Petri nets. There are several benefits of using this design principle: It is easier to exchange content-only for non-graphics tools, and alternative styles can conveniently be replaced to make a new graphical appearance. The ideas presented in this paper are illustrated by means of examples.
