CSS override in-line background style?

I am maintaining a web site, but it's built using pre-defined templates and I want to change the background image in the "contentheader" div container. The html looks like this:

<div id="contentheader" style="background-image:url('/global/images/background/image.jpg')">
  <div>some content</div>
  <div>some more content</div>
</div>

I can edit the CSS page that is used for this page, but I think the in-lins style tag would over-ride anything I added in the CSS file.

Is there a way to add a style attribute in a CSS page and then force it to ignore in-line attributes?

I would do this in Javascript but I need it to apply to all apges on the site and I don't want to edit them all manually.

Thanks. I know someone has an answer... :)

in your ccs file:

#contentheader{
  background-image:url(/your/image.jpg') !important;
}

that overwrites the inline...
