Okay then, here's an example that probably comes up a lot in plugins.

I want to make a CSS file that gets some of its stuff from PHP.  So  
"mystyles.css.php".  Most of it is a simple echo, but a few things in  
the stylesheet are pulled from settings on the wp_settings table in  
the database.

The CSS/PHP file is pulled directly by the browser and is thus not "WP  
Aware".  How would I get that file to access the WP database?


P.S. -- Also, if we're going to encourage coders to do it the right  
way, examples such as this would be a good idea to put into the  
Codex. :-)
