      Description

      Dynamic stylesheets should be generated for all possible variable replacements and stored on the disk rather than being stored in the database and replaced dynamically. The dynamic stylesheets have caused a lot of problems in the past, and they make suboptimal use of caching because the styles script does not send the best headers. Additionally database storage of themes and templates causes problems when updating the board, many users have accidently lost all their changes without backup by refreshing their files.

          Is anyone aware of any installations where "all possible variable replacements" is such a big number that things would actually get worse?
