You need to be sure that the server is sending the files as text/css.
Mozilla won't read the CSS declaration files if the file type is text/plain.

I'd also think about changing your logic so that you use one global
stylesheet for everything except NN4. You'll run into a lot of problems if
you check the User Agent name, as Opera often identifies itself as IE and
other browsers, such as AOL, may identify themselves as something totally
different than a standard browser.
