Yes, we serve a static file (with nginx). You should be able to create
a static URL to your seaside css as well, so I don't see why you'd
have a problem. You cannot specify a relative URL in your HTML output
as this will then probably be interpreted as relative to the file you
wrote on disk. Unless you write the css out to a file in that relative

We use the full url eg. "root stylesheet url:
'http://myHost/resources/style.css'", where this is the site's css
path. Alternatively, try just a relative path like "root stylesheet
url: 'style.css'" and write the css file next to the html one. I don't
know why seaside would make the url absolute when you write it out.

We took all our CSS out of Seaside and put it on disk. We use less and
what not to "compile" it and get the web server to produce it. Mainly
because 1. Seaside is too heavyweight to serve (dynamically created)
CSS up as well as the HTML and 2. The tools are a but scrappy to deal
with CSS properly (but would be nice if we had a Seaside-like library
that helps with CSS).
