Question about multiple css pages referenced in an html file

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a web page that is referencing 3 css pages and the formatting is conflicting with each other. 2 of the css pages are external and so I don't really have the option of modifying the internal contents of those pages (these are google gadgets - theoretically I could download the css code, modify it and store it locally, but that would be a maintenance headache).

So I was wondering if there is some way within html to say

"only css file X applies to this div tag".

Or maybe there's some other way of getting around this problem that I'm not considering.

Yeah, I realized that would solve one of my problems. The other problem is the 2 google css files are also stepping on each other.

you will have to rewrite needed css in your file.

I don't know any other way of doing that.
