Quite a party it was I see looking back!

For me, I "always" use paths starting with a /. It removes all the
confusion, well, after you understand that it's still a virtual path set by
the apache server.

I hate no front slash in almost anything. I hate ../.../... even WORSE!

So my advice, go back the the beginning and use front slashes, put your CSS
it it's own folder under the Document root, and instead of just copying
source, learn what it does (or is supposed to do).

Yes so was I :) You have come late to the party and probably missed the
background.

The HTML says href="mobile.css" so he isn't deliberately looking in
CGI-BIN or making reference to it. Apache is doing that (due to other
directives in the config) so his question is:
"why, when I reference 'mobile.css' in my HTML, does Apache try to look in
'/cgi-bin/mobile.css'.

It is because the current location at the time is "cgi-bin"....so he just
needs to change href="mobile.css" to href="/mobile.css" OR, as you
suggested, put it in a css specific subfolder and refer to that with a
leading "/" instead.
