IE9 won't load css file

Hi there,

For some reason IE9 doesn’t appear to be loading my css file at:

its loading fine in FF, Safari and Chrome, so I can rule out a broken link. The type attribute is set to “text/css”, so I can rule out some kind of MIME issue.

Unfortunately I don’t have a copy of IE9 at the moment, which is making things a little trickier, since all I can really to do get a look at the page is use an online screenshot generator.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Very weird. All I can suggest is to change this at the top of the CSS file:

@charset "utf8";

to this

@charset "UTF-8";

I don’t know how critcal that dash is, but it’s the only thing I noticed.

Hi ralph.m, thanks for your reply. I’ve made the change you’ve suggested. How’s it looking now?


Hi, Mike. The site looks the same in IE9 as it does in Firefox, so it looks like that fixed it. :slight_smile:

Ha ha, cool. Yep, it’s working for me too in IE9 now. :slight_smile:

Great! Thanks guys!
