Example 1: Output just the stylesheet’s URL

<head>
    <!-- …tags… -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<txp:css />" media="screen, projector">
    <!-- …more tags… -->
</head>
<head>
    <!-- …tags… -->
    <txp:css format="link" />
    <!-- …more tags… -->
</head>
<head>
    <!-- …tags… -->
    <txp:css format="link" name="style_name" />
    <!-- …more tags… -->
</head>

<head>
    <!-- …tags… -->
    <txp:css format="link" name="plain" rel="alternate" title="Plain and simple style" />
