CSS styles not reflected in Child Theme

Hello,
I've created a child theme off of a premium theme called Corporate Works.
For some reason the styles aren't showing up when I change them.
Below is a shot of the css folders and my child theme css code: File heirarchy

/*
Theme Name: ASM Corporate Works
Description: Child Theme for Corporate Works Theme
Template: corporate_works
Version: 0.1
*/
 
@import url("../corporate_works/css/reset.css");
@import url("../corporate_works/style.css");
@import url("../corporate_works/css/style_orange.css");


body {}

.form-comment input.submit_no_margin, .comment-reply-link, #searchform #searchsubmit, .form-comment input.submit, .pagination a, a.nice_button {
	float: none;
	font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
	font-size: 13px;
	font-weight: normal;
	border-top: solid 1px #db8d18;
	border-left: solid 1px #db8d18;
	border-right: solid 1px #db8d18;
	border-bottom: solid 1px #db8d18;
	background: url(../images/orange/button_overlay.png) repeat-x top #ff9a01;
	color: #000;
	height: 38px;
	line-height: 36px;
	cursor: pointer;
	padding: 0 12px;
	-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
	-moz-border-radius: 5px;
	border-radius: 5px;
	margin: 6px 0 10px 0;
	-webkit-box-shadow: #999 0 1px 2px;
	-moz-box-shadow: #999 0 1px 2px;
	box-shadow: #999 0 1px 2px;
	width:auto;
}

Are the file paths correct for all the css files?

And could you post a link to your website where we can see it in action, It would help to find out whats wrong much faster and I can also have a look at the code for the style changer to see if thats the problem.

Unfortunately the site is on my local machine right now. I can load it to a live test site later on today.

Okay, I posted the site live here:

http://sandbox.intrepidrealist.com/Testing02/

And guess what? The styles are working for the child theme. (All I did was change the background color and font color for the top "GO" submit button as a test.)

But not working on my local machine. Ever seen that happen before?

arghhhh!!

Now I'm getting no styles at all.
Or at least that's what it looks like on my end.

Okay, styles are back after re-installing the themes.

Now to see if I can get the child theme styles to work again...

Turned out the theme is screwy and not much response from the developer.
Thanks all for trying...
