I try do to that :

<% if ClassName != HomePage %>
	<% require themedCSS(pageLayout) %>
	<% require themedCSS(pageTypography) %>
<% end_if %>

But it doesn't work : the pageLayout and pageTypography CSS files are read when i call a HomePage type. I know it's possible to do in the init() function in the controller classes (other than HomePage_controller) but i would like to do in the template.

Is it possible ? Perhaps i do a mistake ?
thanks for your help.

I'm not sure if you can even put <% requirements .. %> in if blocks (although i see no reason why not). However, i have never known != to work in the templating language (despite what the recipes / docs / tutorials say) so you have to go:

<% if ClassName = HomePage %><% else %>
<% end_if %>

You can put Requirements calls anywhere but they won't respect <% if %> blocks.
