I'd like to know how to apply CSS styles to a tag such as "TD" with a few conditions. EG - How to make the stylesheet overide any other size settings that may be in place. Also if the browser is incompatible with stylesheets to enable the html fontsizes to exist also????

There are a couple of reference site which I use, but I'm not sure if you can override the <FONT> statement using CSS.

create a style sheet first

<STYLE>
 <!--
      TD.ITEM      {
              vertical-align: top;
              background-color: #FFFBF0;
            }

      TD.COUNTER     {
                   padding: 0mm;
                   background-color: #0000FF;
                   font-family:"Courier New";
                   font-size:11pt;
                                       font-weight: bold;
                   color:#00FF00;
                    }
-->
</STYLE>

and in HTML file


<TABLE>
 <TR>
  <TD CLASS=ITEM></TD>
  <TD CLASS=COUNTER></TD>
 </TR>

You just have to specify the style to apply to the tag, and that will overide the default style for that tag.

as for the conditions, let say netscape and ie, unless you have a program in the serverside to send the right style sheet to the user.

Batalf? thanks for the answer, ermm can css style sheets contain code?
 EG. If netscape then
 something
else if ie then
something else
end if

Otherwise I suppose I could set a session variable to pick what stylesheet to use on each page....
