Description

17 years ago
Mozilla isn't loading my style sheet in the latest CVS tree (as of Dec 10 UTC).  It's not even attempting to retrieve it.  It does load the stylesheet on some other sites (such as w3.org).  My site validates, but if there's something wrong, I'd like to know. (By the way, which component should this sort of thing go under, for future reference)
The page triggers standards mode, and the web server sends the stylesheet as
text/plain instead of text/css.

As of recently, and only in standards mode, we only load sheets that are served
as text/css.

This is Apache, so try adding a file called ".htaccess" to the directory the
sheet is in and putting the line:

AddType text/css .css

in it.  If that gets ignored (mod_mime not installed or the server ignores user
.htaccess files) harass your server admin.  Harass him anyway, so other pages on
the server will work correctly.  :)

The correct component for this originally would have been Style System or
Networking (depending on where you thought the problem would most likely lie).

This is not the problem.
I made default.css register as text/css to humor you.
mozilla does not even _attempt_ to get default.css.
It never requests it from the site, as verified with a packet dumper.
I will bug the admin to make text/css default anyway, though ;)
shift-reload is your friend.  We cached the sheet (in this case with an
incorrect mime type).  Then when you load the site we load the sheet from cache,
find the wrong type, and don't use it.

I just shift-reloaded your page and it looks much, much nicer.  :)
