    Have you read this thread? I have already explained why this is not set as the default for vBulletin.

      Yes it is. Head Insert was renamed to headinclude for vBulletin 2.0

                css include

                I realized it early on and it was one of the first things I changed (using styles instead of embedded font tags)

                I took it one step further and moved the style out of the headinclude and into a separate .css file.

                This has the drawback of not supporting the replacements (PHP variables) so all of the colors are hard coded in the .css file.

                My question is, does a browser usualy cache the .css file?

                My thinking is that the browser will cache the .css file, and this saves you the entire size of the embedded STYLE area on each page after the initial load.

                ???

                    Yes, the browser will cache the .css file unless:
                    1. Nocache headers are sent in the requesting page.
                    2. There is a syntax error in the CSS file.

                        Thanks Eva

                        But I'm on a shared server and I don't think the owner can let me do that.
