There's that 'thing' when changes have been made to a stylesheet but a
browser doesn't load it because it already has the old one. Which is what
may have happened here. To prevent it, have something like this in your

<link type="text/css" rel="StyleSheet" href="style.css?version=latest" />

Appending any fake variable to the URL forces it to be loaded every time
the page is viewed and not just when the browser feels like it.
