Ahhh... Finally some useful information so we don't have to guess what
your real problem is ;-)

That fact that this is a stylesheet is completely irrelevant.  You
should be testing by accessing
directly in your browser.  When you can get the stylesheet that way,
then it should also work in a document.

The error log mesage shows you that Apache does not see the Alias that
you added (assuming your DocumentRoot is /var/www).  So you need to
look at some basic questions:
- Are you editting the right configuration file?
- Have you restarted apache after changing the configuration file?
- Do you have other Aliases that could be overriding this one?
- Is the Alias placed in the main server config section, or is it
inside a <VirtualHost>, <IfModule>, or something similar?
