User specific stylesheet?

Question by user1305075

I have a website where a user chooses a template of their choice for their web page.

Once they’ve selected the template, I want them to be able to change some of the styles such as the font colour etc?

Is there a way I could do this?

I thought of perhaps storing the user specified stuff in a field in a database and then retrieve it and display as internal CSS?

$('#red').click(function (){
