using this in my main.cfm stylesheet - no errors until i add the if logic:
<cfcontent  type="text/css" >
#contentBG{/*this will be db or cfm if logic driven*/
float:left;
width:960px;
background:<cfif crumb IS "home">#85a3c2;</cfif>
min-height:500px;
}
</cfcontent>

when I add the above if logic to the stylesheet my stylesheet turns in to this:

#contentBG{/*this will be db or cfm if logic driven*/

float:left;

width:960px;

background: <!-- " ---></TD></TD></TD></TH></TH></TH></TR></TR></TR></TABLE></TABLE></TABLE></A>

this is at the top of the page that is calling the stylesheet:
<cfset crumb="home">

probably just need to escape your #

<cfcontent  type="text/css" >
##contentBG{/*this will be db or cfm if logic driven*/
float:left;
width:960px;
background:<cfif crumb IS "home">##85a3c2;</cfif>
min-height:500px;
}
</cfcontent>

There should be an error behind this.
check out.
some variable is not  defined or  some run time error.

ah yes -

Variable CRUMB is undefined.

i've got this at the very top of the page that's calling the css:

<cfset crumb="home">

am i doing something wrong?

>> this is at the top of the page that is calling the stylesheet:

How are you "calling" the stylesheet?  If you're using <link href="...">, that error would make sense. IIRC, variables declared on the parent page aren't available to a <link>'d page.  You'd have any variables in the URL:

    ie
    <link href="yourStyleSheet.cfm?crumb=something" type="text/css" />

But using a .cfm file and <link> isn't real common ;-) So I may be way off target ...
