External css styles being ignored?
Posted on 2006-07-14
Hi Experts -
Actually this probably isn't an extremely difficult question for someone who knows -- but it's driving me crazy! I'm very new to css and I've certainly seen the benefits of it; now I'm suffering one of the curses. I have an external css style sheet that works on my local development machine, but not when I move it to the live server. (Well, I've now spent a lot of time fidding with everything and now it doesn't seem to be working at all).
I see that it isn't working because I'll have something like font-size:smaller in the css, and it isn't being picked up. I've set strange colors, etc. in it to see if it is being read at all, and it doesn't appear to be.
I reference the style sheet in the <head> like this:
<style rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="myStyles.css" ></style>
What can I be doing wrong?
