Aha! Googling the right terms helps. A way to use php to create a css file.


Probably old news to many, but new and intriguing to me. Just checked 
the PmWiki docs, and yes I can have more than one php file in the skin 
folder. Something for me to play with next weekend.


Key lines:


To use PHP in your CSS file:

1. Rename your style.css file to style.php, then add the following to 
the top of the file:

       <?php header("Content-type: text/css"); ?>

This line tells the browser that the file is CSS instead of HTML.

2. In your HTML files, change the stylesheet references from style.css 
to style.php. For example:

       <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
	media="screen" ref="style.php">
