View Full Version : overriding a style

10-13-2009, 01:53 PM
I have inserted a table into my site and used the styles from another table in an external style sheet to style it, however I would like to style the first column of td tags differently from the rest, I have tried creating a style and applying it but it is being overridden, how can I get this to work please?

Many Thanks,

My guess is that the first row is different because they're table headers. If so they need to be marked up as TH and not TD. That way you can have a separate style for TH's .

I have th tags over the top of the table, I want to highlight the td tags down the left side with a different background and text, I think that because the table td tags have already a style from another table they are overridden by the style, the background changes when I apply the style but not the text colour, must be a hierarchy thing I think,any ideas ?

Without seeing the code, no.
