using css in my portal

I'm developing porlets (mostly the jsp files to which my portlets dispatch).
My portlets/jsp's will be deployed on the sun one portal server. I am not using the sun one portal server themes, but instead I want to use css files to enhance my portal graphics. But how can I do this? How can I apply these css files to my whole portal?

Thanks for checking out the snazzy new Portal/Portlets forum. Can you tweak your display name to be a "real name"? -- with a first and a last name. You can adjust it here. (you can check out the official naming policy, if you like).

I was looking through the SunOne Portal Developer's guide and found this page:
Chapter 3 Extending the Base Providers

It looks like the CSS being used is defined in the edit.template file.

then in this Desktop Customization Guide Chapter 7 Customizing the Desktop Interface it discusses how "To Customize the Current Themes".

Hopefully those 2 resources will help. Good luck!
I agree. Here's the link:
