It means that server accompanies your CSS file with HTTP protocol
header "Content-Type: text/plain" while the browser expects it to be
"Content-Type: text/css".

The contents of your JSP page and your <link> tag are irrelevant. You
cannot solve this by modifying your JSP or CSS files.

The mime type for static files is usually configured by <mime-mapping>
elements in your web.xml.  Either you have those wrong, or your CSS is
not a static file, or something else modifies your Content-Type header
(e.g. a Filter).
