That's interesting.

I've done that on a few sites; err, without the GET variables. I've
either configured apache to call php for css files or used a php page
for the url in a linked stylesheet.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://frenzieddaddy.com/stylesheet.php"
type="text/css" />

(If you do this, make sure your php script outputs the text/css header,
duh :) )

I didn't come across any problems with it, but it seemed like ... on
the one hand "great" so that I could define variables (colors, etc) at
the top and adjust them, or adjust them depending on time of day, et
cetera. But it was an added bit of fluff I didn't need.  

Any way, I didn't see problems as you're describing, but maybe either
the errors here or the warnings here cause the strange displays in
