Home Forums CSS Competing Text Formatting… Reply To: Competing Text Formatting…


Why should I avoid the “!important” tag… I was just going nuts trying to figure out why things weren’t being applied so I started getting a little crazy and adding it to everything not realizing it was bad.

On a similar note…

There is some text on my contact page, the bulleted data, that is not being effected by:
p {
font-family:’Transport W00 Light’!important;
color:#323232 ;
font-size: 13px!important;

The rest of the text on the page (and the main text on the blog) are doing what they’re supposed to do. I can’t seem to figure out what is effecting that text and where I can change it. Right now it is a different font.

The contact page is:
(once again, password: testing)

I am using the Dev Tools the best I can, but it’s still just trial and error changing things to see what happens at this point.

Thanks for the help!
