Thanks to latest webinars and blog entries about e4, I am making some tests to check whether there are parts of e4 that I could already use in my RCP app. I am starting by trying to enable CSS styling in my app.

I took the example of the e4 tech preview, which is actually the "org.eclipse.e4.ui.legacy.workbench" product. This product does use the regular "org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench" application and a CSS sheet.
Then I tried the same thing for my RCP application (defining a new product based on e4 with my legacy application and adding an applicationCSS to its definition), but I did not noticed any change in UI.

Is the workbench used in e4 0.9 the "real" legacy workbench ? What could explain that the CSS applies to IDE and not to my app ? I did not see in the org.eclipse.ui.ide_3.100 plugin any dependency to org.eclipse.e4...
