I just starting a new SS theme and I'm noticing the old FOUC ( problem, but in Firefox 3 (classic FOUC is an IE issue).

So, I've found reference to a fix (, but in my there isn't any sort of placeholder for the stylesheet references? I can see in PageController where the stylesheets are called, but this provides no control over where in <head> the references are placed.

Any ideas?

Theres 2 methods of including stylesheets - by default we use requirements in the PageController - if you are having issues then try and hard code then in the template instead - the idea behind Requirements to load the css is so we can do things like compress all the files into 1 http request, block the file when we need it etc, but including it from the would work fine
