problem importing style sheets

I am having some trouble importing style sheets into my documents.

The code is as follows:

For the style sheet:
		background: #993300;
		font-family: Bodoni, serif;
		font-size: 30px;
		font-weight: bold;
		text-align: center;
A:link, A:visited, A:active
		color: #fff;
		text-decoration: none;
		color: #cc1111;
		font: bold 50% Eurostyle, sans-serif;

for the actual HTML file:
		<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
		@import HREF="test1.css";


if I use the "link rel" command I get partial importation, but none of 
the colors show....I have tried with IE 4.0, Navigator 4.0 and 
Navigator 3.0 and had no success....something must be wrong with my 
method of import because when I put the style sheet directly into the 
HTML header, it works fine.....

Any help would be appreciated
