Spelling things incorrectly!

After fixing my header, it works perfectly.

Does anyone have any data about how common this is, and how many UAs support it?

I just checked wget:

  wget --page-requisites

This option downloads page requisites, but doesn't download the stylesheet in
this case. At first I considered filing a bug, but considering that the
stylesheet is not directly linked from the HTML, I think it would probably be a
bug to download it from the Link header. Interesting stuff.
