This caught my interest, so I googled a bit. Sounds like the BSDL describes the problem - http://www2002.org/CDROM/alternate/334/
I don't think html+css would really work. You would need custom elements, and the meta tag is just evil. XML + XSL however, could.

This I don't see... However, once a schema has been worked out, there are plenty of tools available to work with XML and XSLT.

It does not sound trivial either, but maybe someone here has more experience with XSLT (transformation of XML to, in this case, .RSC) and can provide some clues?

Just thinking out loud...
