    websites randomly not displaying CSS styling

    This has been really annoying me lately, some websites, at random, won't load their CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) styling, and all I get is just a stripped down plain text on white background website with little or no images. (To see what I'm talking about, go up to view on firefox, go to page style, then click nostyle, then click back to basic style, and no, this isn't the cause of the problem, I checked that first)

    Now, as a former Internet tech support agent, I went through the trouble shooting steps I would normally have a customer go through.

    I first disable any addons on my browser (Firefox 3.5.5), Then I clear the browsers cache, I then try and duplicate it on another browser (Which I did, on Internet Explorer and Safari).

    I checked my routers settings to see if things were amiss, and I even hooked my computer right up to the cable modem, by passing the router and it still happens often.

    Sites this happens on regularly are DeviantART, Last.fm, WoW.com, Youtube and Facebook... all sites I go too frequently.

    I'm leaning towards this being an ISP issue, but seeing as it'll take twenty minutes to get through to a human being, I'm going to save that for tomorrow, so I toss the issue to you guys...

    Any ideas? Or is this happening to you as well?

    I wonder if this is a HTTP Server configuration issue!? IE3 was infamous for not supporting CSS, and alot of the early Apache servers were configured so that if it detected IE, (or something it didn't recognize) to not use CSS. With large sites using multiple servers in a DNS round robin, could it be that some of the servers are properly configured, but some aren't???
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    I was actually able to resolve the issue, tracked the issue down to the DNS resolver cache, so one quick ipconfig /flushdns and a full reboot of compy, router and modem and things are copacetic.
