      I tried the web site yesterday and everything works fine now. The admin at the web site changed the content-type to text/css without any acknowledgement or notification of any kind. (Its one of those Dilbert moments)

      LOL!!!!!

      Thanks for the references. I had found the one but I think the other one is better and describes the problem exactly.

      Sorry, I would have provided some URLs if I had known you would need them.
      If you haven't already found it there is even a RFC.
      <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/refs.html#ref-2318>
      Or send the tech guy here:

      Trust me - it's a known problem. Most servers got it right long ago though.
      It's only the really dumb hosts that still haven't. If you are allowed to
      use a htaccess file that trick works fine if your host continues to be
      stubborn.

      Be warned that you are talking to a woman that has been deprived of both
      lobster and rum for a long time. Could get expensive. ;-)
