Hello,

that's wrong.

The document of the URL specified is not UTF-8 but probably UTF-16 encoded.
You have to state any non-UTF-8-Encoding in the XML-Declaration. The
xml-declaration of your document is wrong, it has to be <?xml version="1.0"
encoding="utf-16"?>. So the document is no XML document (it is not
well-formed).

I have tested it, IE 5.5 seems to display it correctly (but it shouldn't),
but Opera 5.12 and Mozilla 0.9.3 failed to display the document. Opera 5.12
tried best in displaying [] (unknown char boxes), Mozilla complained about
the not well-formed document.

So the CSS document is currently of no interest because the document
referencing it is no xml-document, so the xml processing-instruction may not
be interpreted anyway.

Greetings

Christian
