CSS will not access the database. There are a number of ways you could attempt to implement something like this though.
1). Allow your admin to edit the actual css file.
This can be tricky if you can't trust your admins to put in valid css code (which is pretty much all the time). You can limit it a bit by only allowing them to modify a smaller css file, or by giving a form that makes changes to the css file on their
behalf. In either case, if you went this route, there is no database integration, simply file system operations.
2). Store css in the database.
You can store css code in the database somewhere and in the Page_Load method, you could communicate with the database and pull the css code and register it using the ClientScriptManager.
3). Provide themes from which your admin selects.
Here you are only storing the theme they select from the database and loading the css file dynamically. This will limit your admin's options a bit, but sometimes that is necessary.
Note, you don't necessarily need the ClientScriptManager to dynamically load css. You could also do it inline:
<asp:Literal id="cssCode" runat="server"/>
That said, there will be a bit of groundwork that needs to be laid, so I'm not sure how best to help you without getting an idea of what you can and can't do as of this point.
