If this paragraph is not in italics, then your browser doesn’t properly support Unicode, since the use of the Unicode “line separator” character, instead of the Unix linefeed or the DOS carriage return/linefeed character pair at the end of each line is interfeering with the parsing of the headers, and thus the inclusion of a style sheet which would hide this text.
This page contains the following code to reference a style sheet. Because of the line breaks and the LSEP character, it is ignored. Save the file using just LF or CR/LF as the line separator, or bring all three lines onto one, and the problem goes away.
<style type="text/css" media="all">
Note: This bug occurs in both IE 5.5 and Opera 5.10, and appears to be quite specific to the @import method of attaching style sheets. It does not occur when using the link method of attaching style sheets, but could indicate a more general problem of parsing the Unicode line separator character.
