Hi Kristen,

There is no such option in the base HTML5 output as far as I know. You 
will probably need to create a third CSS which imports those 2 CSSs and 
refer to that instead. But somehow your 2 CSSs will not be copied 
automatically to the output folder, probably if you refer to them in the 
DITA Map with "processing-role='resource-only'" will get them copied to 
the output folder.
Or you may add a DITA OT plugin which with a custom ANT build target 
copies these extra CSSs to the output folder.
