	The term "errors" has a different definition for
	CSS than for xHTML.  For one thing, some authoring
	tools insist on an intranet (non-public WWW) view of

	Frankly, I can't remember if I've ever had a "lockup" due
	strictly to a CSS file (even on Windows), but I could be wrong.

	Please include the link and others can help.

	Test with IE7 (and IE8 beta) on a different machine and
	more important, test with other cross-platform browsers.
