[Seaside] Preserving the CSS style between component and task

Hi all,

I'm using Seaside 3.0 and trying to use tasks for a very simple
converter application. I've followed the tutorial in the Seaside book
so I can change it later to my needs

====== Supporting sample code in  aSubclassOfWAComponent =======

>>renderContentOn: html
			html submitButton
				callback: [ self callTask ];
				with: 'Call' ] ].

	super initialize.
	tasks := OrderedCollection new.
	selection := WAValueHolder new.
	tasks add: SubclassOfWATask new

	^ tasks

>>updateRoot: anHtmlRoot
        super updateRoot: anHtmlRoot.
		stylesheet url: ( MyFileLibrary / #styleCss );
		title: self title.

====== Supporting sample code in  aSubclassOfWATask =======

	[ self chooseInput ] whileFalse.
	[ self chooseOutput ] whileFalse.

	selectedOption :=
		self chooseFrom: self availableOutputFormats
			caption: 'Choose output format' translated.
	^ selectedOption isNil not


The problem is when the component calls the task, the style is lost. I
would like to share the style defined in my #updateRoot:, what's the
best way of doing this? Any hints?
