Problem with linking external css style sheet.

I'm having a little trouble linking some style sheets in some web pages I'm building.  I want to have the stylesheets one directory level above the web pages(see diagram), but I don't seem to be able to do it.  I've tried to link using both the following:

//Fully qualified
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://localhost/LockOut/css/proof_page.css">

//Relative

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../css/proof_page.css">


The sheets work when they're in the same directory as the pages or any directory below them.


<-------------------------DIAGRAM---------------------------->
                                                                                       
                                                        ----------------------css--------------style.css
                  ---------------------LockOut
root website                                      ----------------------pages-----------individual pages
                  ---------------------other sites


Thanks in advance for the help.

Try using a virtual path:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/LockOut/css/proof_page.css">

Also, make sure you check over eveything again and look for simple problems. From what I can see, you have the right idea and it should work fine, so make sure you double check everything.

That didn't seem to work either.  As another note the webpages are in a directory that is protected via web.config.  But I've made the path of the css allow users = "*"

Well it works now.  I retyped the entire <link line.  All I can think is that I had some sort of typo in the html or the href.  Anyways the I ended up using the following (in case someone else needs to know):

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="..\css\proof_page.css">

I'm going to award you inviser with the points (it doesn't seem right refunding the points for my silly mistake).  Thanks.
