I've have an issue with inline styles, or page-level styles NOT overriding the external CSS styles in Internet Explorer 8.
But crazier, everything EXCEPT the font's color is overridden!

<span style="color: #990000;" >This test is NOT red?!?!?! ONLY in IE 8!!!</span>

Is there a CSS "HACK" to making this browser comply with this 15year old standard?!?
