Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Myfaces Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by MarioIvankovits:

   * EL can be used, as in the example above.  By getting the stylesheet from a managed bean,
it can be set, and changed, at runtime to allow the user interface to dynamically be ''skinned''.

+ The filtering will happen only on the first access of the stylesheet. Any subsequent access
will just deliver a cached result. Means: You can not interweave any request specific stuff
in your stylesheet. This make no sense as then you can simply embed the stylesheet into the
