EPUBReader doesn't find the CSS file?

I ran into a strange problem. I have an ePub file, which is OK in Validator, in Sigil, in Bookworm, in Stanza, but EPUBReader ignores the CSS file.

Does someone have an idea what is wrong?

Hi Paul,

did you try to load the pages directly in Firefox? Does it look different compared to EPUBReader?

No, in Firefox the CSS isn't recognized either. In Safari it is perfect.

It's the first time that I see such a phenomenon. In all the other e-books I made, EPUBReader and Firefox do recognize the CSS. So I must be overlooking something ...

I had a short look at your css. I've seen that you use "<style>" and "</style>". I guess, that these tags are causing the problem. Please remove them and try it again.

No, that doesn't change a thing. Thanks for trying anyway!

Okay, but you should remove them nevertheless .

I found the problem:

Code:
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="../Styles/Style0001.css" type="test/css" />
You use "test" instead of "text" .

What should it look like? I just brought it up in Seamonkey and it looks ok to me. the only problem I see off hand is the signature is over to the right while the closing greeting is on the left. Have you overridden the default style setting in FF?

Yes, it was OK in every program. None of them saw the typo I made (see posts before this one). Only EUBReader/Firefox saw it. Very interesting experience!
