p { 
   font-size: 24px !important;

    Chris, it’s not evil but sometimes neccessary. Imagine you use something like Joomla and need to chnage CSS styles of a module. If they update the module all is gone. But if you extract the styles you want to edit and “import” them, you can attach your onw CSS with the changes and most times you will have no trouble updating :)

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
