Constants in CSS - it's like waiting for a bus

I'm more of a server-side programmer really, and don't deal that much in client-side stuff like CSS and JavaScript, but I try to keep an eye on what is going on in those areas as they tie so closely to the backend stuff.

I was reading the lunchroom blog a few weeks ago where Scott was talking about how he's modified Jim Weirich's Ruby Builder object to be able to express CSS files in Ruby so that you can implement things like CSS constants among other things.

Then a week later Eric Meyer posts about Shaun Inman's update to CSS-SSC. Which funnily enough is another way to achieve CSS constants (CSS-SSC stands for "Cascading Style Sheets Server-Side Constants")

It's just like London buses... ;)
