Windows 7: Dropbox

Dropbox

Hello SevenForums!

It's a pretty popular feature that you can upload your .txt and .html file into your Dropbox, and then be able to read it directly from your browser, without downloading it.

In my case, I use .html and make different tags like <h1> <p>, all simple tags like that.

Take THIS example. You see, it's all there. Look even at the URL, it's defiantly from my Dropbox, and it's public!

So now to the actual question.
The path on my Dropbox i'm uploading this .html file to, is a little folder called "Project". In that folder, the .html file is there.

I want to upload a .css file, as a Stylesheet, and expect it's working.

Now, is this possible? By this, I can create different designs, and uploading them. I've tried it, but the .html doesn't apply the .css.

All suggestions are welcome!

Clicking on your Example, gets me to a 403 page saying I don't have access.

i'm still getting a 403 error for your link.

i've just made a very quick webpage here in my dropbox folder linking to an external stylesheet - it's all working as expected. i didn't have to do anything special - i just followed the normal rules for html and css.

my very simple htm:

HTML Code:
<html>
<head>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" media="screen">
 
</head>
<body>

<p>hello world</p>

</body>
</html>
and my css:

Code:
p { color: blue;
font-size:48pt;
}
then i went into my dropbox public folder and copied the public link: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22096449/css/hello.htm

as you can see, the text is big and blue.

yes - it has to be in your public folder for others to have access to it. all other folders are private.

also, there's no rep in the chillout room.

Hmm.. I tried putting both .css and .html on my desktop, and the CSS applies to the HTML so that's perfect, but when I upload the Stylesheet and the HTML-codings .. it just won't apply the CSS.
