Better way of importing css stylesheets in Flask

Flask is pretty cool.  But, I ran into a little snag today where if I used dynamic urls, my stylesheets broke.  The solution is url_for in the head section of your base template (or otherwise).  You can get it to work by using the following for inserting your css:

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”{{ url_for(‘static’, filename=’style.css’) }}”>
