Using v. 4.8 of this excellent plug in, but cforms.css is not invoked (nor any other theme's CSS). The script that inserts it into the header seems not to be working, it does not appear in the source of the target page at all.
Viewed in Firefox 2.0 an Apache on Mac, as well as Firefox 2.0 on Windows.
Otherwise one of the best designed plugins I've ever used.
I'm having the same issue, however I've found that it works fine in Firefox. But for some reason the CSS and JS do not load in IE.

I'm running it on a local MAMP server, so no URL to show, but I think I discovered the problem.
I'm using a custom theme for WP (v. 2.2). I tried the contact form with WP's default theme, and the stylesheet was called.
Are you using something inherent in the default theme, or specifying that the script be written to header.php? Not everyone uses a file by that name – particularly when using WP as a CMS, not a blog.
If so, it's worth mentioning in the documentation that the form stylesheet link is written to header.php by your plugin and requires that file.
If that is not the problem, I'm stumped.
Still love the plugin – and your blog, too.

Thanks David. It's quite common practice for plugins to add code to the header, whether it be JS code or inline CSS or CSS links.
cforms comes with its own stylesheets, which all need to reside in the styling/ directory. The styles used should not interfere with any of the actual WP theme CSS. On the contrary, often times cforms users experience layout issues due to their WP theme "overruling" cforms CSS.
To add the header code (CSS link to cforms CSS file) cforms uses the standard way of adding header info. Not sure if WP when used in a CMS mode has issues with that…of course you can hard code the CSS information into the overall theme CSS file…
