We handle a lot of page attributes with config file replacements:

$CSSVar = "somestyle.css";

$pagetitles = array(
    'Title1'       => 'style.css',
    'Title2'    => 'Attribute, Image, CSS, Etc.',

if ($pagetitles[$style]) {
    $CSSVar = '<link  href=' . $pagetitles $style] . 'type="text/css">';
