css file won't link to xhtml

I am trying to read xhtml spec and use one of its examples about css2 in
xhtml.

The example on the PDF paper with internal styles defenition works just
fine. When I try to use an external file with css defs it just does not work
unless I use <link rel...> in the <header>. However, this is not how the
xhtml examples link style sheets and I would like to know the reason why it
is not working for me.

Here is the html file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="styles.css" type="text/css"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css" type="text/css" />
<title>Home page.</title>
</head>
<body>
<hehe>this needs to turn green before I go home</hehe>
</body>
</html>

and here is the CSS file:

hehe {
color: red;
font-family: monospace;
font-weight: normal;
}

What is wrong, can someone tell me please?

The Doctype you specified doesn't include a "hehe" element.

What content type are you serving the file with?

Which XHTML Spec ?
URL ?
The example on the PDF paper Which PDF Paper ?
URL ?

The example you quote _is_ working. You have another example that links
to "an external file with css defs" that doesn't work. What does this
broken example look like ?

No - I don't know what is wrong, so I can't tell you why it is not
working.

For me, I have the styles applied and it appears to "work". Give us the
URL of your server and we can look at your example that isn't working.

There is no "hehe" element in XHTML. Use either <span class="hehe" >
and .hehe {} (which works in all HTML versions) Or else use
namespacing, but that's not usually a good idea.

The PI only works for real XML--not text/html.

This example works as long as it has the <link rel=""> to stylesheet in the
header.

I kind of figured this out - if I serve the file as xml type from httpd then
it works. If I open it with my brower as an html page. It does not.

Thanks to all.

the papers and specs I am reading some from www.w3c.org
