No subdomains, this is currently only a local machine,  
The ssl cert is self signed.  The original problem was with a cgi script 
that looked different, but when I grabbed the html and saved it as a 
static page, the problem remained.  It is an external stylesheet, 

But you did point me in the right direction.  Sometimes I hate 
computers!  The stylesheet that was being used was coming from 
/var/www/html/css/styles.css and /var/www-ssl/html/css/styles.css and 
not from /var/www/html/test/css/styles.css, etc. where I had put my 
stylesheet.  I gotta watch out for those leading slashes.
