I'm back in town as of today and I'm slowly processing my backlog.

I see you have been busy while I was away. Great!

To answer your question: I would suggest to use the same approach as gtk 
itself does. As the css is critical for the proper display of some of our 
custom widgets, it should be included in the form of a GResource [1] directly 
into the binary instead of a file on disk that may or may not be present. Gtk 
does this for example for its (default) Adwaita theme. More details may be 
found directlyin the gtk sources.

Your css work so far and this mail made me think some more about the css 
concept for gnucash and perhaps we need to refine our initial idea. I'll post 
those in a separate mail though.
