Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I encounter many questions where the OP is having trouble getting a CSS style sheet included, and is completely clueless as to how to debug the issue. Often, the only way they know to tell whether a style sheet gets loaded is that the rules are being applied.

Does anybody know of a reference question that covers (ideally with picshurz) how to

  1. Look into your browser's source code
  2. Locate any CSS embed instructions
  3. Utilize your inspector's "Net" tab to verify whether the style sheet has been loaded successfully

etc. etc.?

It is very tiring (not to mention excruciatingly boring) to do one-on-one support for this every time.

You'd have to cover a lot of browsers, especially since different versions of the same browser have completely different inspectors. – Asad Saeeduddin Jan 11 '13 at 14:57
@Asad true. I could live with instructions for one specific platform though - a web dev can be expected to download and install a new browser – Pëkka Jan 11 '13 at 14:58
