Netscape 3.x does not recognize stylesheets. 

You don't have to do anything with the DTD; either the browser 
recognizes stylesheets or not.

Netscape 4 and Explorer4 understand some of CSS, and little of HTML4.0,
and I hope that your stylesheet should work there.

In you second example you may got the URL wrong.

The absolute URL of your stylesheet includes 

... ras266.mindex.com/ras226.mindex.com/ ...

If looks like an error.
