CSS and php.inc. conflict

  • # February 11, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I set-up a spry menu bar and styled it in a php.inc file so I could include it where I want it to go throughout my site. Well the bar functions properly within the document, but deos not show any of the buttons I styled on my testing server. The links have to be right the javasript is referenced and the action script at the bottom of the page. My belief is that my main style sheet that is also referenced is overriding some properties in the spry .css. Does anyone know where the conflict migh be happening. The include file is between the div wrapper on the webpage. I tried just pasting whole menu bar within the document an it functions right, but not on the testing server.

    td{font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:10pt;}
    .fieldtitle{font-size:10pt Arial;color:#505050;}
    .revtitles{font-size:16pt Arial;font-weight: bold;color:#000000;background:#cda471}

    a:link{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : underline; color : #004400; }
    a:visited{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : underline; color : #004400; }
    a:active{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : underline; color : #004400; }
    a:hover{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #000000; }

    .menu a:link{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #808080; }
    .menu a:visited{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #808080; }
    .menu a:active{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #808080; }
    .menu a:hover{font size: 10pt Arial;
    text-decoration : none;
    color : #005500;
    }

    .boxtext{font size: 10pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #808080; }
    .boxtextmore A:hover{font size: 9pt Arial; text-decoration : underline; color : #000000; }
    .boxtextmore A:link{font size: 9pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #004000; }
    .boxtextmore A:active{font size: 9pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #004000; }
    .boxtextmore A:visited{font size: 9pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #004000; }

    .copy{font size: 9pt Arial; text-decoration : none; color : #606060; }

    UL {
    list-style: square outside;
    }
