The external stylesheet is:
.tést { color: white; background: green; }

if interpreted as ISO-8859-1 encoding. Which I take to mean that the  
stylesheet needs to be served via http with the explicit encoding of  
utf-8, so that it does NOT match any of the content. (Meaning the  
stylesheet is malformed utf-8, which explains the title.)

So I presume the stylesheet should be updated to be:
.t�st { color: yellow; background: red; }

and the test does in fact need the 'http' flag (which I already added).
