This input lets you summon an external stylesheet. For instance, you can enter in "/windowsclassic.css" to manually use that theme rather than pushing a button. Any stylesheet from any on-line source will work. Be careful because there's surely someone out there that will inject a virus into a stylesheet and get some poor sap to plug that in here.
