Hi all,

if my css files are in /css/ could I deny users access to this dir but allow the webserver?

How can I protect CSS?

Its the user's browser that requests the CSS file, not the webserver.

Uh, if I understand what you are asking correctly, no.

A visitor to your site needs to be able to download the source of all of the relevant files in order to render your the pages, including html, javascript, css, etc.

You can use .htaccess to prevent hotlinking to your css files, however.
