[resolved] CSS Validator - 1 error left! "style.css not found?" (5 posts)

    When I try to validate my site's CSS the only error left is that style.css is not found.... is this why the site displays incorrectly in Internet Explorer? That's the next big hump before I put the site up! Your help is greatly appreciated.

    This is the error I keep getting found on line -1 . What does that mean? Something isn't in there that needs to be?

    File not found: http://www.jameslanmanandthegoodhurt.com/style.css: Not Found

    Here is my CSS

    You need to look for the call to style.css in your theme's header.php file.

    Hmm... I'm not seeing the problem in header.php


    Sorry there's still lots about proper page setups that I don't understand - maybe the problem is here?
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    The problem is line 16:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />

    Since the file doesn't exist anyway, just remove it.
