in reply to PM Stylesheet on local filesystem? WORKS!

Don’t forget that the web-browser will request the stylesheet ... and that it will use a URL to do it, just as it requests anything and everything else that it receives.   So... the source file has to be somewhere (on the system that’s hosting the web-server) that corresponds to a URL that a web-client can issue.   And all pages, etc., must contain that URL.

The web-client does not know, nor does it care, that the file actually resides “at such-and-such place on such-and-such drive.”

    "file:///C:/Work/DATA/PM.css" is a valid URL and a browser will request the valid "file:///C:/Work/DATA/PM.css" URL and will look for it on your local system on C drive in Work/Data/PM.css

      Thanks for the tip!

      After opening the FireFox Error console, I saw the error messages coming up, which led me to the overall solution.
