css stylesheet never loaded / never applied
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020205 BuildID: 2002020516 and others The stylesheet (at http://www.opmath.com/styles/opmath.css) is never used or never loaded. Thus the text on the rednered page is the default font, size, etc. Note that: 1. Netscape 4.7.x on Solaris, Netscape 6 on Solaris, Mozilla 0.94 on Mandrake, and IE 5.0.1 on Mac OS X all render these pages okay. 2. Both the html and the css documents validate ok with the w3c validator. 3. Mozilla on Mac OS X (the only browser I can find with this problem) does render the pages okay when they are loaded from the local file system - the failure may only be when pages are accessed over http. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: View http://www.opmath.com/index.html with Mozilla. Actual Results: Page is rendered with correct overall layout, images and scripts. The text content, however, is not affected by the stylesheet specifications. Expected Results: Applied stylesheet. HTML and CSS documents generated with BBEdit 6.5.2 on Mac OS X, generated in UNIX partition on Mac OS X, ISP's HTTP host is unspecified UNIX.
The problem is that the .css file is served as 'text/html'. In order for a css stylesheet to be applied in strict mode, the css file must have a content-type of 'text/css'. You will need to modify your server to send css files as text/css or use a DOCTYPE that does not cause strict mode. Marking INVALID ...

Verified. Bruno, see http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/quirks/ for more information on the two rendering modes, and see the release note at http://mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.0/#devel that talks about this situation and the various ways of dealing with it.
