Linked CSS, IE3.02, and intrafile jumps

Folks,

I'm having a problem with a LINKed CSS, IE3.02 (Win95), and HTML files
that contain intrafile jumps.

Most of the HTML files in the project contain jumps to other HTML files.
A few of the files have hotspots that jump to an anchor that is within
the file (intrafile jumps). 

When I LINK my CSS to files containing intrafile jumps, the intrafile
jumps don't work. If I embed the style sheet, the intrafile jumps work.
It doesn't seem to matter what the CSS contains for style definitions. I
can't get any LINKed CSS to work with intrafile jumps.

Can anyone shed some light on why I can't get my LINKed style sheet to
work in files containing intrafile jumps?

Thanks,
Patti

Here's my style sheet:

/* -- filename: style.css -- */
/* ---------------- base body styles ------------- */
body { background-color: #FFFFCC; font-size: 70%;
          font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; }
p       { margin-top: 0em; margin-bottom: -5em;	
           font-size: 70%; }	
/* ---------------- anchors ---------------- */
a:link		{ color: #0000FF; } 
a:visited 	{ color: #800080; }
/* ---------------- lists ---------------- */
	/* -- numbered list style  -- */
ol { margin-top: -5em;  margin-bottom: -5em;
      margin-left: -12em; font-size: 70%; }
	/* -- bulleted list style  -- */
ul { list-style-type: disc; margin-top: -5em;
      margin-bottom: -5em; margin-left: -12em;
      font-size: 70%; }
	/* -- definition list (for glossary) -- */
dl {font-size: 70%; }	 			
/* -------------- headings 'n' stuff -------------- */
	/* -- base heading style  -- */
h5 { font-size: 95%; font-weight: normal;
       color: #800000; margin-top: 0em;
       margin-bottom: -5em; }
	/* -- topic title  -- */
h5.topich { font-weight: bold; }

Here's an example of a file containing intrafile jumps.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">

<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<TITLE>eService Glossary</TITLE>
<!-- If I LINK style.css, intrafile jumps don't work -->
<!-- if I embed my style.css, intrafile jumps work -->
<LINK REL=STYLESHEET HREF="style.css" TYPE="text/css">

</HEAD>
