Well, this cannot really happen magically. If you want AFC/file.xml to be rendered using the original stylesheet, you either have to add a stylesheet PI in it, or programmatically transform it.

The first is the easiest to do if you have control on the XML files. If that is the case, you can go for the second approach by producing something like the following instead of the links discussed thus far:

<a href="javascript:transformAndShow('AFC/file.xml')">AFC</a>

You will have to implement the transformAndShow function yourself, that is, transform the file then inject it for rendering on the target window. Sarissa [1] may be usefull in this case, as it provides a common API for this on IE and Mozilla-based browsers.
