CMS for CSS Styles questions..

Hi Ok, well my client wants full control of his website (which Im building from ground up).

So basically After I created the main template (the layout will be fixed so dont want client to control that otherwise it be a mess).

But he does want control of font type, size, colour to be changeable by himself. Also to control the main top menu items and the submenu items relating to those pages. And of course the main content for each page he wants control off.

I didnt want to use PowerCMS as I want a little more customisation for my project.

First Question...Would I need to write INLINE CSS on each page rather then an external CSS file so that I can store the CSS attributes in my database?

Second Question for the pages, I was thinking of just using the index.php file and then adding something like index.php?Content=About Us , index.php?Contact Us etc etc so that I can pull the page content to the index.php for that particular menu option then for the sub menus for each page I would just do a simple recordset querying the URL.

Would I be on the right track for the two above questions, or is this a silly way to approach this type of project? Im just wondering if there going to be any pitfalls I have overlooked?
