Hi Carlos,

I looked around and don't see any support for multiple CSS files in the
compiler.  I could add it, but I'd rather spend my time on other things.
I'm unclear what the return on investment is.

If you do decide to change the compiler, it appears that CSS has an
@import statement, so I would recommend starting by trying to implement
support for that.  An alternative approach would be to have the compiler
try to find all .css files in a SWC.  Right now it only looks for

And, of course, you could probably find a Maven and Ant way of
concatenating all of the files during the build.

Remember that Royale lets you extend the set of Type Selectors so you can
(and should) have selectors with the same name as the component.  And then
I think it is relatively easy to find a component's selector in the
defaults.css or guess what selector name to use in your fx:Styel block.

I don't know if your work will end up generating class selectors as well
as type selectors, but if it does, having one file might make it easier to
avoid collisions in class selector names.

Good luck,
