page with php include doesn't see css style sheet

This PHP is all new to me. I'm trying to use PHP includes to pull text in. I tried it once from an existing page and it worked fine. I tried it and made a new page, as a test, and this one is not pulling in the CSS. Here are links to the pages:

Existing old page:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/sisterhood1.php
This is the php line on the above page:
<?php require("sisterhood.php"); ?>

This works. This is the include file:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/sisterhood.php

Now, this one doesn't work. First, here is the newly designed main page I am testing:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/test.html#

The new page is under Home -> What's new
It doesn't see the css:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/new.php/
This is the php line on this page:
<?php require("new_update.php"); ?>

This is the include file:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/new_update.php/

I just don't get what's different. Appreciate your help!

Try putting a './' in front of your include filenames.  Use './' assuming they're in the same folder as the pages including them.  Sometime the search path in the configuration of whatever is serving your page (IIS or Apache) can cause some funny interactions.  For example, change:

  <?php require("sisterhood.php"); ?>
to
<?php require("./sisterhood.php"); ?>

It is problem in you, not the code...

CSS NOT VISIBLE:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/new.php/
CSS VISIBLE:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/new.php

Just don't put extra slash in your browser bar, ok :D

And you also have to change your menus to link without the slash at the end.

It's not me doing that. The browser (firefox) is doing it automatically. Can't avoid it, can I ?

That's not true. You are doing it automatically :D

I checked HTML source code and the slash is there :)

Internet Explorer is doing it also, and doesn't see the CSS.

My point is this: it worked perfectly in example 1 (sisterhood) and the exact same thing isn't working in example 2 (new).

Look sisterhood1.php is your old page, where menus are OK.

While on your new page, your menus aren't OK... How many times do I have to repeat this?
I'm expert and I surely know what's wrong.

I am NOT doing it. What you see is coming from the server. This is my markup (with the preceding slash lol) :

<div id="main">
<!-- begin main content -->
<p>
<?php require("./new_update.php"); ?>
</p>
<!-- end main content -->
</div>

This menu:
http://www.templebnaiisraelclw.org/test.html

If you go under Home > What's new
you have pretty nice slash at the end of <a href="" attribute
