If you go to my site (link below) and click on the consulting tab you'll see where the .css is NOT working! If you scroll down to the bottom right corner of that page and click on the Strategy you'll see that it works on THAT page. However it doesn't work on Rates or Types.

I have run this through all the major validators and the only issue is the border="0" inside an <input type="image" statement. The working page has the same error.

I am playing around with the title="" tag in the <link> for the .css. It doesn't seem to matter what I set it to. The index page fails with only the basics, the strategy.html page works, the types and rates pages do not.

The main site is at: http://www.philpetree.com
The offending page(s) are at: http://www.philpetree.com/consulting/

I would really appreciate some guidance as I just can't figure out why its not working on just these 3 pages!!! Grrr!!!

Thanks!

Fixed it!

Although the rel="" attribute of the <link> tag is documented as "optional" it A) must be present and B) it must contain the word stylesheet. Now, what's interesting is that stylesheet is NOT the only word it can contain and it does not have to be first!

If you have a page titled "building blocks" and you want to increase your googlebot exposure you can put a title in your <link> that says "building blocks" and in the "rel" tag you can also have "building blocks stylesheet" as in the following example:

<title>HTML Building Blocks</title>
<link type="text/css" file="style.css" rel="html building blocks stylesheet" title="HTML Building Blocks" />

I wanted to do this because I have seen some high ranking sites on google & yahoo that have utilized this method to gain a few positions in the search rankings.
