I'm still not clear about how/where/when your changing gadgets.css -- I just tried building
and deploying shindig to tomcat and accessing:

... /container/sample1.html

Comes up fine and renders two gadgets.  I then edited the gadgets.css file in Tomcats exploded
webapp directory:


And added:

h2 {
    font-size: 200pt

Reloaded the page and saw the css change reflected in the " Sample: Simple Container" text.

What exactly are you doing?

Sorry -- the link I sent earlier wouldn't be present in the 2.0 release.  A lot of people
are working off one of the more recent 3.0 beta releases and I had just assumed you were referring
to one of those.

The testing I did above was actually with shindig trunk but I it should work just the same
with shindig 2.0.

Hope this helps.
