CSS rule with ID or class exception

Is there any way with css to set a style that will affect all instances of an html element except those of a particular class or ID? For example, giving all paragraphs <p> a 10px margin except for those with a 'nomargin' id <p id="nomargin">?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think the sollution is to set the class with margin 10px for all <p> elements, and for those particular <p class="nomargin"> set the class with margin 0 px. (and don't use multiple elements with the same id, use the same class)
Hope it helps

I understand. So I guess there's nothing like

p (!.nomargin) {
   margin:10
}

Right? No way to specifically tell a rule to ignore a certain class or ID?
