Your web server seems to be returning application/x-pointplus as the
MIME type for .css files. This appears to cause Gecko-based browsers to
(probably rightly) ignore them. Mozilla 1.3 on my box exhibits the same
behaviour you described while IE (notorious for ignoring MIME types)
presents everything properly.

Your server signature says Apache. If your host lets you use .htaccess
files you should be able to fix this by putting

AddType text/css .css

in a .htaccess file in your css directory.

Hope that helps,
