Problem Formatting GridView using .CSS in Site.Master Sub-Form

To sum it up, I have a Site.Master, a sub form, and a .css stylesheet.  The sub form has a GridView in it.  I have the CssClass="gvw" for the gridview, but it still won't pick up the formatting from the stylesheet.  The Site.Master links to my stylesheet named Styles.css.  Other controls are formatted fine using this, which tells me that the stylesheet is linking fine in the sub forms, however, the gridview WILL NOT FORMAT.  The gridview css formatting displays in the designer, but in runtime, all formatting is lost.

Here is my Styles.css:

.gvw
{
    background-color:#ED9F9F;
    border: 2px solid #711515;
    padding:2px;
}

THE GRIDVIEW WILL NOT FORMAT USING THE ABOVE .CSS.  ANY IDEAS?

Bring up the web page and do a "View Source" on it, and you should get a clue as to the source of the problem.

If you don't understand it, post it.

1) Are you using themes?

2) Do you have a link in the page for the CSS file?
    <link type="text/css" href="Main.css" />

what happens when you move the style .gvw from the stylesheet to the sub form .. does the grid get formatted?

when I take your html and put it in a file on my machine - and then put a Styles.css WHERE IT CAN BE FOUND - the .gvw style is APPLIED to your grid.

Double and triplecheck your <link> statement....is the Styles.css really in the PARENT directory?

The other possibility, if your Styles.css is in the right place....your browser might have cached an OLD version of the stylesheet, keeping you from seeing the appropriate display.  Try clearing cache and re-running.

You've got to be joking.  My dad always taught me to check the simple things first.

It was the cache.

You are great.  Thanks for the help!!!!
