Hi Niki,
You can use external css on pdf page through static resources.
How to Use external css in Visual force Pages
Step 1: Create a CSS file.
Open NOTEPAD or any text editor and type the following code:
Save the file with a .css extension (say CssExample.css)
Step 2:
Upload the saved file as a Static resource.
Setup -> Develop -> Static Resources and click on NEW.
Give a name for the static resource say CssExample. Remeber to set the Cache Control as "Public".
Step 3:
Create a visualforce page and paste the following code..
<apex:page standardstylesheets="false" showheader="false">
<apex:stylesheet value="{!$Resource.CssExample}"/>
<h1> This text is displayed using CSS </h1>
Save the page. Now you can see that the text within <h1> tag is displayed in GREEN color because you have specified so in the CSS file.
I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.
