Thanks again for providing more details.

Excellent. In that case, SLD will do it for us (the web map is 
MapFish/OpenLayers). :-)

To serve WMS and WFS, to make a long story short, because we use a very 
weird, and unused anywhere else, format for meteorological data, we 
coded our own WMS server and are in the process of coding its WFS 
counterpart. That WMS/WFS server shares the same codebase than our open 
source virtual globe SPI 
(http://eer.cmc.ec.gc.ca/index_e.php?page=s_software/spi/spi_e.html ) 
which connects to GDAL/OGR, GEOS and even some GRASS GIS commands.

Thanks Christopher!

Solution found. Cheers,
