I'm not sure why this wouldn't be working as the feature is the same in the 5.x releases.
I would double check to see that you do not have multiple copies of INI files with conflicting settings. You might have one in your XMetaL Author installation path and one in your %appdata% folder.
You should not need to set the CSS path in this case, provided your CSS file is also stored on the http server with the same name as the DTD and in the same folder. In this case it should be brought down to the local folder (as you suggest) along with the DTD, CTM and MCR files (if any).
The alternative to using this feature is to deploy using the more traditional method of placing everything inside the Rules folder, or elsewhere on your local machine, in which case you are also able to use a catalog file to locate the DTD along with a PUBLIC id in your XML documents if you wish.
