Editing CSS files to Change Font and Size

I am trying to make a simple change to the layout and/or typography css files associated with the plain theme but I am having no luck.
When I edit either of these two files I never see any changes on the home page or any page for that matter.
I see the style sheets reflected in the home page html:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="themes/plain/css/layout.css" >
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="themes/plain/css/typography.css" >
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="themes/plain/css/form.css" >

And in the layout.css, I see a reference to the div header and h1 tag.
#Header h1 {
   font-family:"Century Gothic", "Trebuchet MS", "Arial Narrow", Arial, sans-serif;

but after I make a simple change like changing the font-size from 30 to 10, I never get an update on the site.

I have tried to use the ?flush=1 parameter but nothing seems to work.

Am I missing something or am I just going crazy?

Did you clear your browser cache?

did I mention that I hate IE.... that did it. For some reason the setting "check for newer version of stored pages - everytime I visit the webpage" did not work.
