An MSS file is a stylesheet used by CartoCSS-based mapping programs, such as Mapbox, OpenStreetMap, TileMill, and Mapnik. It contains map styling information written in the CartoCSS styling language. MSS files determine how content appears on a map (e.g. what roads should be shown, what colors those roads should appear in, how wide the roads should appear, etc.).

You should open an MSS file in a Carto-CSS based map creation program, such as Mapbox Studio Classic, TileMill, or Kosmtik. These programs contain helpful features that will help you understand the styling information contained within the file. However, because MSS files are plain text documents, you can also open and edit an MSS file in any text editor if needed.

You can open an MSS file (and apply the style settings it contains to a piece of music) in MuseScore. To do so, select Format → Load Style... from the program's menu bar.

If you want to view the settings an MSS file contains before applying those settings in MuseScore, you can open the file in any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad, Apple TextEdit, or Github Atom.
