    Anyway for a css file to pull values out of a mysql database?


    I've slowely been migrating my site from using standard html pages to using asp pages. Presently the style of the site is controlled by a CSS file. I have created a form that would edit the sites background colors, font colors, link colors, link font type, sites font type, etc, etc. The issue is to merge the changes in with the site, I'd have to edit each and every page. I'd rather intergrate the changes I make in the configuration form that I have (which is linked to a mysql database) and have them change/link/edit/whatever the main Site CSS file. Basically I am letting the site managers edit the colors and font information whenever they choose without having to rewrite the html or touch any of the coding.

    So basically
    Code:
    configuration.asp          sitecontrol.css
          \                                 /
            \                             /
              \                         /
              configurationtable (mysql db)
    I am wondering if there is a way to get my css file to go to the configurationtable in my mysql database to pickup values.

    You can just put your CSS in an ASP file, and link to it as such.
    Code:
    <%
    	Response.ContentType="text/CSS"
    	Dim foo
    	foo="#dedede"
    %>
    body
    {
    	background-color:<%=foo%>;
    }
    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.asp" />
