css to be or not to be?

Can anyone tell me why an external css file which works fine in ie & ns on
my computer will only work as designed on ie when uploaded to the web.
Netscape ignores it completely. I am using ns7.01 and ie6 and dw2004mx?

Check the URL for the presence of spaces and/or backslashes. IE is likely
to be more forgiving of such malformations.

If you feel that any of the above is incorrect,
inappropriate or offensive in any way,
please ignore it and accept my apologies.

A URI would be more helpful. My guess would be that the server claims the
file contains something other then text/css. IE second guesses the author
and treats it as CSS anyway, Netscape rejects it on the principle that it
as it doesn't know what the style sheet is, it shouldn't risk playing with
it. (Which is a good thing - if anyone comes up with a non-css style sheet
language that is in some ways css-like, it could play havock with MSIE)

the css is being sent as text/plain or as application/x-pointplus
instead of text/css. tell your crappy host to fix it, in the mean time
you can use AddType text/css .css in a .htaccess file.

Hello, I don't know if it is only me but I was sure that header("Location:url") redirects the browser instantly to URL, or at least stops the execution of the code.
