The problem is that CSS != HTML.

In an HTML file, you need the <style> element to say, "Hey, the stuff
in here isn't HTML, so don't bother."  In a CSS file, everything is
CSS, so there's no need for a wrapper.

It worked perfectly without the <style> tags in the .css file because
that's how it's supposed to work.
