in reply to Included cgi does not get CSS formatted?

I think you are looking in the wrong place, at least for starting out.

The browser is getting some HTML and (probably) CSS and rendering it, and it isn't rendering it the way you want.

This means that the HTML and/or CSS is wrong.

You are looking at the SSI and the Perl - but you should be looking at the HTML and CSS to see how they differ from what you want.

Once you have figured out what is wrong with the HTML and/or CSS then you can worry about changing the Perl so it generates the HTML you actually want.

Tools such as a validator might help you track down problems in the HTML, and…

I've never used CSS before.

Opera has a web standards tutorial that includes a decent section on CSS.
