Default db-driven css styles?

sort of a weird question, but is there any easy way to pull information out of a db and use it as a page style (i.e. if background, font, and link colors were defined in a table, could they be pulled out and used based on the page being viewed)...
there doesn't seem to be any page.stylesheet or page.style or anything like that... and the code can't really be stuck right into a style tag in a control, since the style tag would need to go in the head tag and not in the body tag...

maybe there is some built-in dot net thing that I am missing here?

any help is appreciated!

Yes, there is a way. You need to look into cascading style sheets.
You can ask for one to be included in your project by right clicking on the
project folder and selecting stylesheet.
You will also have to put a <link> statement in the header section for each
page that connects to the style sheet for that page.
