how to add a style to items within a CheckBoxList?

I have a CheckBoxList to which I wish to add a specific style from the css page to format the text size.
How do I achieve this?

I hjave tried adding the attribute 'CssStyle="txtSmall"' to the tag such as <asp:CheckBoxList CssStyle="txtSize" id="lbCostCenter" Runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" RepeatColumns="2" RepeatDirection="Horizontal"  width=100% />/>
But this does not work. It renders the page as <table id="lbCostCenter" class="txtSmall" border="0" style="width:100%;"> but the text for each CheckBox is the wrong size ie the css style is not applied.
If I try adding code to the cs page such as :
lbCostCenter.Attributes["CssClass"] = "txtSmall";
lbCostCenter.CssClass = "txtSmall";
but the result is exactly the same as the first attempt.

How do I force each <input ... />to read <input ... CssClass="txtSmall" />

where u specify the style sheet? i mean the path..... first try copy this style class txtSize in your aspx page... then save close the application and restart it... check it is working or not

Hi Roopesh,
I tried what you suggested but to no avail.
I do have the style defined in many other places in the app which all work fine. It is just this CheckBoxList that does not work

The article is very interesting but it doesn't seem to help.
As you can see from below I am able to insert the 'CssClass=txtSmall' into a ,span. but it has no effect.

alCostCenter.Add(new AddValue("<span CssClass=txtSmall >" + dsCostCenter.Tables[0].Rows[i][0].ToString()+ " - " + dsCostCenter.Tables[0].Rows[i][1].ToString() + "</span>",dsCostCenter.Tables[0].Rows[i][0].ToString()));                                                

Page source:                        
td><input id="lbCostCenter_3" type="checkbox" name="lbCostCenter:3" onclick="__doPostBack('lbCostCenter$3','')" language="javascript" /><label for="lbCostCenter_3"><span CssClass='txtSmall' >1234 - IT Support</span></label></td>
