ASCX Cannot Use External CSS File?


Recommended Posts

(Newbie here, sorry.)


I cannot get an ASCX control to use rules from an external CSS file in a VB.NET app that I inherited (which only uses inline formatting at the moment). It finds and recognizes the file, and the format has been validated.


CSS rule: .ais{ font-family: Arial; font-size: 20pt;}

ASPX <head>: <link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/App_Code/AMCG_Styles.css" />ASCX: <table id="tblAISContent" class="ais" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 900px; height: 425px;" >


However, none of the text in the table uses either the font name or size, and no errors are thrown. There are no other CSS files or <style> tags in the app.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure if browsers care about case in the attribute, but you wrote rel="Stylesheet" with an uppercase S while the standard values are all in lowercase.
