CSS properties replaced by user agent?

Using a <hr class="myclass" /> in my html works in Firefox. But in Safari and Chrome it is not displaying the <hr> in the correct style.

Using the developer tools in Safari and Chrome it shows that my <hr> styles are overridden by the User Agent Stylesheet. Does anyone know how to prevent this?

Are other things not working also?  Do you have an "@charset" in the first line of your CSS file?  If so, remove it.  Safari doesn't seem to like that and Chrome is a 'Webkit' browser also so it often acts just Safari in these things.

I was trying to offset the <hr> using padding or margins. Chrome and Safari didn't like it so they ignored the style. I removed the padding or margins, set the style to: float:right width:90% and it worked in all the browsers.
