Hi June and Henny,

Yes, css/stylesheet can be used with Greenstone.

The function which has to be modified is located in :

GSDL Error {
<title>GSDL Error</title>


<body bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#000000" link="#006666"
alink="#cc9900" vlink="#666633" _1_>

You will have to add this line between <head> and </head> in the GSDL Error
function :
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/gsdl/web/images/YOURSTYLE.css" type="text/css"/>

You should replace YOURSTYLE.css with the name of your stylesheet.
In this example, the stylesheet file must be in the greenstoneimages

You can also take a look at the garish collection, available in the
"Documented Example Collections (42MB)" file which can be downloaded from

Hi all,

I searched on this list about using CSS to format the pages and I came
across one example below:
(click on the button says 1958-1980)
I noticed that this site used external css files. My question is: where
should these css files be put under gsdl directory and how to reference
them in the documents? Since pages such as browse by title/subject were
generated on the fly, I am kind of lost here. Can anybody help me with it?

Hi Group,

Does greenstone allow us to use style sheet?
I have tried to use both method: embed the style sheet inside the Web page
and use external style sheet. When I execute the Web page alone, it worked
fine. But, when I uploaded the collection into Greenstone, both method were
not working, there was no style adopted and all fonts went to normal (times
new roman). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
