styles not working

  Asked By: Parvesh    Date: Nov 03    Category: MOSS    Views: 586

On a custom MOSS aspx page, the following only partially works:
th {
border-style: none;
text-align: left;
color: red;
The color & font-size have no effect on resultant display, while the text-align
works fine. None of these are specified in the table{...} section.

When I use these on a dummy html file on my PC and open with browser the effects
of color & size are exactly what is expected.

Anybody know what is goin on?
(man - this SP display stuff is inconsistent!!)

Use the developer toolbar in IE8 to check the inheritance of styles for the
header row of that table. I suspect you'll find one of the built-in classes
has a '!Important' tagged on to the end of some of the styles. That marks
the CSS at that level as being non-overrideable. No matter what you specify
in a later file anything marked !Important will always be in effect.
