I'm having the same issue as Marinus.

My codes looks like so:

from mod_python import apache

def index(req):
    req.content_type = 'text/html'
    req.write(docType()) # a function which puts the doctype in the
    req.write(head(title('Word List') + link('StyleSheet',
'index.css'))) # more functions to put the right tags in.

The page it creates looks like:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<title>Word List</title>
<link rel="StyleSheet" href="index.css" />

<h1 class="None">
Welcome to Word List
<p class="None">
Please login or <a href="reg" name="register" title="register"

<form action="auth" method="POST" class="None">
<input type="text" name="name" value="" class="None" />
<br /><input type="password" name="password" value="" class="None" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Login" class="None" />



The .css file is in the same directory as the index.py file, yet the
browser won't render the page using the linked .css.

I have tried adding ../, ./, and the absolute path to the .css to no
avail.  When I save the source of the page, and then open it with my
browser it links to the .css properly.

Any help would be much appreciated.
