Can't See Changes in Child Theme

So, I've done everything by the books. Read and viewed lots of tutorials but still nothing. Here's what I've done so far:

*I've activated my child theme (even switched to a different theme and then back again).
*Got rid of every other line except : @import url("../sliding-door/style.css"); I read that here-->(viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1880)
*deactivated all three of my plug-ins
*I'm aware the template is case sensitive
*when I visit my host and look up the "sliding door child"file, I can see the attempted change in style.css, but no changes are visible (for example: if I wanted to change the color of text from white to red).

What else could it be???!!!
Here's what I got:

Code: Select all
/*
Theme Name: sliding door child
Description: Child Theme for Sliding Door
Template: sliding-door
Version: 0.1
*/
@import url("../sliding-door/style.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/dark.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/light.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/imagemenu/imageMenu.css");

I guess I've never really stated my problem.
Why can't I see the changes I've made on my child theme when edited?

No idea.

Here's my child theme:

/*
Theme Name: Sliding Door Child
Theme URI: http://dubbo.org
Description: Child Theme for Sliding Door
Author: Wayne
Author URI: http://dubbo.org/
Template: sliding-door
Version: 0.1
*/

@import url("../sliding-door/style.css");
@import url("../sliding-door/imagemenu/imageMenu.css");
.entry-content #facebook_like {
height: 20px;
}

I copied and pasted your child theme code from above but still nothing.
I even tried the "One-Click Child Theme" plug-in just in case I was doing something wrong in my child theme making operation. I tested it (the plug-in) out on Twenty-Ten and it works fine. I can see changes I made in the editor but, when I switch back to try to do the same for Sliding Doors, nothing.
Would really like to use your theme, you've done such a great job but I don't see how I could being that I'd lose everything once updated.
Thanks for you help.
