i fixed the issue with ff by adding Transitional to the doctype on my web
pages.  its wierd how they worked before but now i have to specify
transitional type.  i fixed (on most of my pages) the type="text/css" line
or added it, i should say.

i think it is being sent as html because of php.  i have an example of what
i did with the server and the pages at www.linuxoverwindows.com/forum.php
under css + php making them work together.

i also finally figured out how to make my own customized error page to serve
all the domains and all the errors from 1 page.  i will post that one on the
forum for anyone interested.  but that was off topic.

my main thing with the css was to have a single css sheet for each domain.
then i could simply change variables via a page that would edit the
style.php page with the proper variables for the style.css (script, if you
will).  im not sure yet how to make php, from within the script, not to send
its output as html.  if thats what i need to do.

but i was curious about the validator.  thank you for your responses.

>(www.linuxoverwindows.com/css/style.css)

The second file (style.css) is not being sent as CSS but is being sent
as HTML. The mime type being used is text/html. You need to change your
server configuration to send CSS files with the MIME type of text/css.

One thing that puzzles me is why it validates the CSS when you point it
at <http://www.linuxoverwindows.com>.

Firefox may be displaying your pages differently then you expect because
you are not sending your stylesheets as CSS.
