CSS not accepted by Adobe Digital Reader


having come across a strange problem that I could not find via the search function in this forum, I am posting, hoping that one of you may be able to shed light on this:

Using InDesign CS5 I created an epub version of a print book.

After hours and hours of formatting it looks good. Or rather, it looks good on Sigil, calibre, firefox readers.

But Adobe Digital Reader will not take the style sheet.

In my despair, I copied the entire stylesheet into one of the html files, between

<style type="text/css">
Lo and behold, it works.

Now it is not exactly the purpose of a style sheet to get copied into each html file, is it?

So how can I get the "$&("$&!!!!! Adobe digital reader to except the style sheet that lays in Styles/template.css??

The beginning of my html looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<html xmlns="">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../Styles/template.css" type="text/css" />
What am I doing wrong?

Help would be much appreciated!
