Make sure you put the <link> before the <body>, and before any text that
might imply a <body> -- for example, you'd see that error message for:
<link href="teststandard.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
...because the X implies a <body> (and a </head>) and so the <link> ends
up in the wrong place.
