SimpleHTTPServer, external CSS, and Google Chrome

Discussion in 'Python' started by Justin Ezequiel, Sep 17, 2010.

  1. I am running "python -m SimpleHTTPServer 80" on Windows XP Pro SP 3
    (Python 2.5.4)

    browsing http://localhost/ using IE8 and FireFox 3.6, I get blue text
    on red background
    on Google Chrome 6.0 however, I get blue text on white background
    placing index.htm and styles.css (see below) under IIS, I get blue
    text on red background for all browsers,
    including Google Chrome 6.0.

    I get exactly the same results when browsing from another machine.
    what's wrong? what do I need to change in SimpleHTTPServer?

    <title>your title</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css" type="text/css">
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    color: blue;
    <body><p>foo bar</p>

  3. Hmm.
    Will download and install newer python versions to re-check then.
