[thelist] FilesMatch/ForceType leads to CSS death?

Firefox is not loading the css file because it doesn't find it where it 
thinks it should be. The nice URL tricks the browser into thinking it is 
currently in the news directory and your link to the css file makes it 
request '/trial/news/example.css', which gets parsed by your php script 
and results in a database error message within your template.
You can:
	1. change your css href to '../example.css'
	2. put <base href="http://www.example.com/trial/"> into your HEAD

Further, your server is sending the css as text/plain and Gecko browsers 
definitely don't like this. Add this line to your htaccess:
	AddType text/css .css

Hope this helps.
