From Bugzilla Helper:

Hello, I noticed recently in some recent nightly builds that: CSS has been
slowly failing to render properly, or at all for that matter.  Now, I know that
the CSS and XHTML are valid on this page; in fact, I have seen the CSS render
properly in the past.

The specifics of what fails to render properly includes: backgrounds, table
properties, colors, borders, and padding.

I am viewing this with a Win32 build #20011217 on Win2k.
I know the contents of this site render properly under IE, and I have seen them
render correctly in Mozilla in the past.

Here are the relevant links:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://process-of-elimination.net/en/


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the page.
2. Check the source and so forth.
3. Look at the validation.
4. Look at the output in another browser.

Actual Results:  Mozilla rendered the page improperly.
When Mozilla rendered the page, the tables were not processed, so it looks as if
there wasn't a table tag, the colors are not displayed, and the borders are not
rendered.

Expected Results:  Properly rendered tables and borders.

Take a look at the XHTML/CSS validation.
The page is in standards mode (xhtml doctype). The server sends the stylesheet 
files as text/plain which is not a valid content type for css (the only valid 
one is text/css).  In standards mode we ignore such incorrectly served sheets.

See bug 108930, comment #3 for the upcoming release note on the topic, together 
with steps to fix your Apache installation not to be broken.

Looked again.  There is no real site here, hence nothing to evangelize.  Marking
