I’ve been gnashing my teeth over a stupid browser problem, and bemoaning said browser’s total lack of online support, particularly of the discussion group sort, and thinking to myself that gee, I wish I had someone I could ask this question, or some forum in which I could ask it.

Okay, so I’m slow.

Anyway, here’s the issue, and I’m mostly aiming at you multi-browser Mac OS X types. See the link over on the right that reads Academic Belatedness? Follow that link, first in IE5. Things should look pretty familiar to you; I’m using a more-or-less identical CSS on that server to that I’m using here. Fine.

Now follow that link in Netscape/Mozilla.

You see what I mean? For some reason, Netscape can’t find the CSS. It’s not as though it can’t read it; it reads it fine on this server, and even when I open the Academic Belatedness page from my hard drive, where it sits in precisely the same relation to the CSS as it does on the server, it reads fine there. It just simply can’t (or won’t — perhaps it’s an act of will, designed to make me batty) find it on the server.

Any ideas? As you might guess, I’m clueless, and annoyed.
