Just spent 30 minutes trying to work out why my page will not load a JavaScript file even though I could manually browse to the file:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/js" href="js/home.js" />

I then proceeded to take a 5 minute walk around the office and rethink my life decisions...

    Also, drop the type nonsense for regular CSS and JS. Plus that "text/js" is the wrong MIME type anyway.
