Look at wp_enqueue_script and wp_enqueue_style, tgese wrap the methods  
of the $wp_scripts and $wp_styles objects other methods off which are  
also handy (localize method of scripts for passing dynamically  
constructed data like, but not restricted to, translated strings, and  
the conditional (I think) method to use IE conditional comments).

I'd be interested in any way of getting my scripts and CSS cached by  
the Gears powered Turno feature; anyone?
