No CSS at all in IE , works perfectly in Firefox

Newbie question - and obviously I am missing something!! Any help would
be appreciated.
I am basically doing Rails tutorials and have fully working - fully
styled apps running in Firefox - however when I try and view same app in
IE I get absolutely no CSS styling at all - I compare the source from
each browser and it appears the same - and all paths are correct
thanks in advance

Then maybe there's a problem with your CSS? When you view the source
on each browser, is it different? Maybe your HTML specification tag is
incorrect.

This is a silly question but does your IE display other websites
properly?

Not a silly question at all - that's the first thing I did! I went to
rubyonrails.org just to make sure I wasn't mad.... it shows up perfectly
- well as perfectly as IE will - but I will settle for that! I am
stumped and I know it must be staring right at me...

Make sure all your CSS brackets { and } are closed properly. You will get this error if one of the ones high up in the CSS is not closed properly.

I checked the CSS in the Validator ----- tested fine - no errors
But I have at least isolated to IE7 - IE6 works ok.

Can you show us the CSS file please?

Try breaking it down into smaller chunks and see what works and what doesn’t work when you comment it out. Surely it’s just one thing that’s breaking it all, and I can’t see what it is.

Yea I would do what Ryan is suggesting. Test 1st half, and then 2nd
half. If one of them works and the other doesn't, test 1st half of bad
code & then 2nd half. Keep doing until you figure out what is breaking
things.
