You are using

<!DOCTYPE html 
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
     "DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

which yields in http://www.oberlin.edu/~PAN/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd
where the DTD isn't. Use
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/xhtml1-transitional.dtd> instead.

Your server responds with the wrong MIME type, contact your admin to fix
this, otherwise your stylesheets will break.
