Regarding the external stylesheet:

You have
<style type="text/css">
in it. That's a no-no. External stylesheets are defined by the .css
extension and should NOT include the segregators used in HTML files.

Regarding test02:

Your styles are called out using

In that you don't define what the style is for, I suspect that's where your
problem is.

A word of advice: Internet Explorer has ALWAYS been forgiving of
badly-formed code. It's not the best choice to prototype sites in, even
though it is currently the most popular and widely-used browser. Opera is
getting better, but still has display quirks when it comes to rendering
certain advanced HTML or CSS2 properties. Netscape 6.x/Mozilla is the most
standards-compliant browser for Windows at this time. I would encourage you
to try to build your sites to that browser, as 9 times out of 10, they'll
display the same in the other two.

Hope the above helps some!

By the way, your posted link was wrong (luckily, you have it on another part

Good luck!
