Setting a default stylesheet for a custom control

If I'm correctly understanding your question, you want to override the 
getUserAgentStylesheet() method inside your Control class. In here 
you'll simply return the CSS file that is being used to style your 
custom control.

I'm also aware there are some issues (with CSS error messages being 
printed to the console) in certain releases (8u20). If you run into 
these, ping me and I'll give you some pointers.
