Problems with CSS styles when using .htaccess and mod_rewrite

I am using .htaccess fand mod_rewrite to redirect pages. Basically I would like to do the following:

The link http://www.mydomain.com/movie should be redirected to:

 http://www.mydomain.com/topic.php?p=movie

I am using the following:
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9\-\_\ \%]*)$ /topic.php?p=$1&%{QUERY_STRING}

When I introduce something like http://www.mydomain.com/movie/movie the link is redirected but all the styles and css files are missing.

I mean, if I introduced more than one "/" the redirect is not working properly.

Any idea?

Thanks

I'm sorry I did not get it the first time.

In your template where you put the <link> tags. Use absolute paths:
<link href="http://mysite.com/style/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

-or-
<link href="/style/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

It works in the server, but affects all my css files in my local server.

I mean,  if I use <link href="/style/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />my local css does not work. What can I do? I have tryed several things but did not work.

Thanks

If you have a configuration file, you can do this:

<?php
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] == 'localhost') DEFINE('SITE_LINK','http://localhost/mywebsite/');
else DEFINE('SITE_LINK','http://www.mydomain.com/');
?>

in your template page, just use:
<link href="<?php echo SITE_LINK; ?>style/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
