When I try loading that site now, I see lots of requests to things that
end in ".css" that get a HTTP 404 response; I do not see any images.

The first one is for

Based on the config you provided, that should be handled by
the "front" nginx by doing a proxy_pass to the "back" nginx;
and the "back" nginx should provide the content of the file

The end result is a 404 File Not Found.

Does that file exist on the back-end nginx server? What do those nginx
logs say for this request? Did the request get to it at all, or did the
request stop at the front-end nginx server? What do *those* nginx logs
say for this request?

If you make a test request like

	curl -i

do you see the response that you expect? (Which should probably be HTTP
200 along with the content of the expected file.)

Slightly strangely: when I do that using curl, I get a HTTP 200 response
but with html not css; where my browser gets a HTTP 404 response. Maybe
they are talking to different servers, or maybe there is some config
that handles the request differently based on something other than the url.

Not really, no, sorry.

I do not know how things are intended to look, so I cannot tell which
parts are not that way.
