Safari & @import issue.

    I've never seen this before and I'm having trouble finding any information on it, but it seems Safari has an issue with embedding @import into a stylesheet.

    For instance:

    WordPress requires that a style.css be found in a theme directory but I prefer to keep my stylesheets in a /style sub directory. Therefore, beyond the comments WP requires - my style.css is simply:
    @charset "utf-8";
    	@import url(style/reset.css);
    	@import url(style/structure.css);
    	@import url(style/widgets.css);
    	@import url(style/global.css);
    Code (markup):
    FireFox and IE have no issues, but Safari on OSX will not render any style whatsoever.

    I've tried using all know @import formats as well:
    @import "";
    @import url();
    @import url("");
    Code (markup):
    It doesn't make any difference.

    For now I'm simply calling them all independently and it saves a server call - but the issue has intrigued me to learn more about it.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? Found an explanation?

    Konqueror 3.5 and Safari 2 do not support the @charset at-rule. Perhaps that's throwing a wrench in the works. Have you tried it with that removed?

    You might also run the stylesheet with the rules through the W3 validator to make sure you don't have some little syntax hic-cough that the KHTML/Webkit engines don't like.
