Can you use ASP/PHP within a CSS stylesheet?

I'm trying to achieve this:
background: url('driver-training/<%=(rsNCnimg.Fields.Item("NCnewsimg").Value)%>') no-repeat center center fixed;

But it doesn't load. Would appreciate any advice offered. Thank you.

youre probably better off adding it inline where it should work. I *think* embedded will probably work as well

I'd probably add the css to the top of the page. If you wanted to do it in an external style sheet, it might be possible by renaming the .css file to .php. You may have to do some header modifications to get it to work properly as well. Try adding this to the top of your .php file that is acting as a .css file:

header('Content-Type: text/css');
