This is a topic come from a discussion in a CSS thread I'm in,

Do any of you guys know if spiders take an interest in the names of CSS files?

<link type='text/css' rel='stylesheet' href='mystyles.css'>

Would it be of benefit to rename the styles to 'my-keyword.css'?

If there is it is not very much. You could try naming it some random code that does not bring up a search in Google and see if you can get your site to show up for that code after the bots visit. It would be a good place to put a misspelling.
