Hi Henny,

You have to specify the path of your stylesheet RELATIVELY to the Greenstone folder.

So if I understand, your file is located at:
"GreenstonecollectCostumesStylestyle.css"

Then your statement should be:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/collect/Costumes/Style/style.css">

(No need to use "../" in the path)
