Default External CSS not working on BB Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I've been creating a website tailored for Blackberry phones. So far I've tested our website on Blackberry storm and it works perfectly. But when we tried it on the bold, the whole thing was destroyed. Background wasn't showing, font color, sizes, weight etc are the standard ones, no padding, etc etc. Basically, all the styles are gone!

Now the thing I noticed is that, all those styles are in an external css file. Them not loading probably means the external css file wasn't loaded. Inline styles work.

Is there something I'm missing or something I did wrong or do certain blackberrys (bold and older) DO NOT support external CSS referencing?

I researched further in and out of this forum and I've referred to this address a lot of times already, but it didn't quite answer my question...

>>>BlackBerry Browser - Manuals and Guides [specifically css reference]<<<

Going back to the situation, I have a css code in my external css that makes the background black. (background-color, yes?). I tested the site on the bold but background was white (default). First guess, was hey, maybe it's not supported. I checked that link above and yes, it is supported so I guess it is really just a matter of loading external CSS files...

Someone help, please and thanks
