    I have a left_nav.css that has an a:link color of #70CCE2 and I also gave it a span class color of #70CCE2; however it is on eBay’s site and their style sheet has a body a:link color #002398. My hover effects and visited a link work, but their body a:link supersedes my style. How can I change this and shield my left nav?

    Here is my left_nav.css :

    what I would try doing is us ID and Class selectors before your a:link

    So like “li.class2 a:link”

    ID’s are better as they hold more “selection weight” as to say.


    I tried that too and it simply wouldn’t take.

    Only solution I found was going like this:

    a:link { color:#70CCE2!important; }

    Thank you to you both. That !important trick is awesome! I was going crazy trying to figure this out.
