    PeterD.Compress missing some CSS files

    Hi all,

    I've implemented Peter's compression package on our Umbraco instance. It's working in that it's combining and compressing my JS files and sending the page down gzipped.

    However the plugin seems to have missed most of my css files - but it has found some.

    Here's the code:

    <html xmlns="">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />
    <link href="/css/homepage.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="/css/structure.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="/css/common.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="/css/blog.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src='/js.axd?files=Scripts/jquery-1.3.2.js,Scripts/jquery.url.js,Scripts/jquery.slider.js,Scripts/jquery.banners.js,Scripts/jquery.jcarousellite.js,scripts/jquery.product_landing.js,Scripts/DatePick/date.js,Scripts/datepick/jquery.datePicker.js,Scripts/datepick/jquery.autotab-1.1b.js,Scripts/jquery.watermarkinput.js,Scripts/jquery.meet_team.js,Scripts/,Scripts/jquery.curvycorners.min.js' type='text/javascript' ></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <link href='/css/datepick/css.axd?files=datepicker.css' type='text/css' rel='stylesheet' />


    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I found the problem...

    The css files where declared as:

    <link href="/css/homepage.css" rel="stylesheet" />

    But needed to be declared as:

    <link href="/css/homepage.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    The type property is required. Too right 'n' all. :-)

    glad you found the problem yourself :)

    Indeed, the type="text/css" is required, because there are other link-items that you don't want processed.
