Do the following:
1) Fire up your Internet Services Manager.
2) Highlight the computer icon for your web site.
3) Right-click and select Properties.
4) The tab should be labeled "Internet Information Services" - Under
Computer MIME Map, click on the "File Types" button.
5) Look for .css in the list. Highlight it and click on Edit.
6) Change the content/type (MIME) to: text/css.
7) Click OK, OK and OK.
You may have to stop and start the web services for this to take effect.
