Load external CSS in IE8

Trying to load an external stylesheet, but can't get it to work in IE8. I've tried jQuery 1.4.2 and 1.4.4.

Tried all these different approaches below. Tried putting the code inside and outside of $(function(){. Tried putting it in <head> and last in <body>. Nothing works in IE8

$('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />').appendTo('head');
$('<style type="text/css">@import url("style.css")</style>').appendTo('head');

	$('<link/>', {
		rel: 'stylesheet',
		type: 'text/css',
		href: 'style.css'

Can I reopen this bug, or do I need to create a new one?

It seems like it's only a problem with relative URLs. It "works for me" only if I supply an absolute URL for the css file.

Testing using a relative URL and this seems to be working fine as well.
