This class implements a template engine for CSS style sheet files.

It reads a CSS style sheet template file that may have definitions of styles assigned to variables. The variables may be used in the definition of other styles.

The class expands the definition of all variables and stores the processed CSS style sheet in a cache file.

OOCSS creates a new way to write CSS files in a new Object style fashion. Using Parent/Child relationships and predefined variables, you will be able to produce rapid CSS that is not only easier to maintain and read, is more intuitive as well.

CSS is a relatively limited style definition language. When you need to create new styles by changing a little the definition of others, the solution is often nor trivial, nor easy to understand and maintain.

This package provides an alternative solution that consists in a language that allows defining CSS classes and use inheritance to define the new CSS classes changing only a few definitions.
