Firefox displays the page as intended?

Can you discuss what DefaultType you are using in your httpd.conf, whether you have added any AddType directives, and so on?

Default content-style-type

It may also help to add the following to the <head> section of your HTML

Code:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
as this is recommended. I'll try it soon.

Doesn't work either; I've tested the same setup on a FreeBSD machine and it styles the pages as intended, from a link. For whatever reason, OpenBSD serves up the "text/css" as "text/plain" (at least Mozilla thinks so), no matter what I do, so I'll leave it at that, keep it plain, and move on!

I've figured it out!

In setting up Apache on OpenBSD, I had two problems. A.) Scripts would not get run (e.g. .php, .pl) and B.) Mozilla browsers would not display the stylesheets. I had more important business to tend to; so I never sorted it. Now I need a local server, so....

I found the cause of problem A. I had conf/httpd.conf loading mime_magic_module, either I hadn't had it configured properly or it was just a bad idea.


In the case of problem B, drhowarddrfine was right -- it must be served as text/css. The only thing he left out was how to enforce it.



According to a little webbing, in standards mode Mozilla tells external stylesheets to piss off, unless the mime type is text/css. I checked the error console in Flock, and guess what it said:

Quote:
The stylesheet http://myserver/spidey01.css was not loaded because its MIME type, "text/plain", is not "text/css"



Out of box OpenBSDs Apache 1.3 was serving CSS as text/plain.

Code:
# httpd.conf
AddType text/css .css



YKYMF !
