Strangely enough, I get the following (cut-and-pasted) text in the  
plone_control_panel page:

   """Note: You are running in "debug mode". This mode is intended  
for sites that are under development. This allows many configuration  
changes to be immediately evident, but will make your site run more  
slowly. To turn off debug mode, edit your zope.conf file to say  
'debug-mode off' — then restart the server process."""

However, the check box you mention is not checked. I'm not sure what  
the difference could be.

Further examination of the page reveals that ploneCustom.css is  
listed last, suggesting that style sheet precedence runs top of the  
page (lower) to bottom of the page (higher), consistent with myriad  
pages on the web...

I have now made certain that all boxes are checked on the page...

I just restarted the plone instance after writing the above paragraph  
and my changes (horribly ugly) have taken affect (hurray!).

Is this an issue with the cache? I found instructions on how to empty  
the plone cache but I could not figure out how to translate these  
instructions to plone 2.5.

Thank you again,
