http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#uri i.e. as defined in RFC 3986
using the resource identifier of the style sheet as the base resource
identifier reference.

><style>@import "format.css";</style>
><base href="http://example.com/" />

This is not allowed, <base> must precede all elements that refer to
external resources. What the error handling behavior might be depends
on all the things you left off.
