I have a custom page layout defined as lf_cms in layouts.xml file, and am trying to remove the css file as defined in default_head_blocks.xml and load a new CSS file, except the CSS changes are not loading.

What do I need to do to get changes to the CSS files to load on the page?

I know that the page layout is loading correctly because it's showing up in the admin section under the Design tab on a CMS page. In addition, if I make a syntax error, I get an exception when viewing the page.

I have also recompiled static assets, cleared caches, and removed var/view_preprocessed files.

Design section of the CMS page


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<page_layouts xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/PageLayout/etc/layouts.xsd">
    <layout id="lf_cms">
        <label translate="true">lf_cms Custom</label>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_layout.xsd">
<update handle="1column"/>
        <remove src="css/standardStyles.css" />
        <css src="css/customStyles.css" />

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
