Thanks Booth but I was referring to cascading SQL Views NOT css.

Just following this thread, so I may be restating views already offered?

Anyway, css sheets give me the ability to have a basic css that defines
all attributes excepting, say, color schemes.  Then I can cascade
varying color schemes that can signal various channels. The one I am
working on for the moment has blue for DB2, orange for web service, and
green for existing & static  .json files.  The big benefit of this is
that when I change a margin, for instance, it's changed in one place
only.  Another advantage is I can hand off the color schemes to someone
else and let them prettify to their hearts content.

Hi Nathan,

Could you post a sample of a cascading views and why you consider this a
slick functionality ?
