Best way to override CSS * definition with !important


I continued searching around. First I wanted to see if you could remove a previously made definition. The answer was no. Another option would be to define each sub-element like this:

.change p {
  font-size: 1.25em !important;
}

While this worked I also know that it is bad CSS form. Also if I have to add an entry for each element that I want to override. And what if there are other classes that I want to create that encounter the same problem.

So I thought about using a reset and came up with:

* {
  font-size: inherit !important;
}
body {
  font-size: 12px !important;
}

This whole experience made me realize you should never use the wild card selector to declare anything. Everything inside your web page will inherit from body so just define your base in body.

!important being overridden by element without inline style
You're applying it to the container. You need to change the font-family on each individual item to inherit if you want that to work, otherwise it's going to be overridden by specificity as your !important only will be applied to the element in your CSS selector. !important does not override children rules if they are set, only rules applied to the selector. Imagine what CSS would look like if i

Xcode Method definition 6 end
When Xcode builds your project, it creates a folder, compiles all of your code into files in that folder, and links them into your app. When you change your code, it only has to recreate the affected files and link them again. However, sometimes there can be a glitch where files don't update, causing your code to have errors when there really isn't an error at all. Pressing Shift-Command-K (Cle
