You should not be trying to inject CSS and/or JS in your xhtml pages.

Instead you should use the liferay-portlet.xml to include these resources.

There are two ways of loading CSS resources in a JSF2 view/composition:

1. Using the HTML link element tag like this:
<link href="#{request.contextPath}/css/foo.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>

2. Using the JSF2 h:outputStylesheet component tag like this:
<h:outputStylesheet library="css" name="css" />

The benefit of using #1:
- The browser directly requests a resource from the server and does not invoke the JSF lifecycle.

The benefits of using #2:
- The CSS resource can use the #{resource['']} EL-expression inside it for images.
- The href URL generated by the h:outputStylesheet renderer is compatible with WSRP.

So #1 is always faster, but #2 is more flexible. This demo uses #2 simply for testing purposes.
