  • Added a more elegant method for adding CSS to the page:

Instead of using print_scripts to insert the CSS directly into the HEAD, CSS styles are generated within simple-custom-css.php (the sole file for this plugin), then added via wp_enqueue_scripts, so now it will appear in the HEAD as:

	<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://yoursite.com/?sccss=1" />

...even though no css file is actually generated.
