One example: A huge corporation, which wants every webpage to look the
same, no matter which server the page comes from, might mandate that
the CSS comes from the "Head Office" server.

And yes, when the head office server is down (or its DNS entry gets
screwed up), it does cause mayhem on a wide scale, as we found out a
couple of weeks ago. This is also why *my* pages don't adhere to the
Corporate standard.

FYI : I loaded that page into Opera (10.10) and did Ctrl-Alt-Shift-U. replied :

   Line 1, Column 1: end of document in prolog


  This error may appear when the validator receives an empty document.
  Please make sure that the document you are uploading is not empty, and
  report any discrepancy.

Therefore, I shall stop worrying about why it has suddenly started
reporting that about my own pages.

Personally I prefer to use absolute paths but without the domain name.
something like

 <link rel="stylesheet" href="/stylesheets/style.css" type="text/css" />

Does that  style even have a name?

If that makes it easier for maintenance, that's just o.k. as any
other approach.  Locations are always resolved to an absolute ones,
after all.  It is usually not that convenient to use absolute URLs
as if you change the domain you need to change the content, also.

Good point. Looks like it is a trade-off on a number of
fronts, and comes down to picking my poison.
