CSS has no effect for page


I've to develope a page using the CMS system Sitefinity.
I try to layout a template but some of my CSS have no effect.
<div id="StatusPlaceHolder_T6875ACFA001" class="topMenu">
<div id="ctl00_StatusPlaceHolder_T6875ACFA001_ctl00_ctl00_siteMapControl_verticalsimple" class="RadTabStripVertical RadTabStrip_topMenu RadTabStripLeft_topMenu">
<div class="rtsLevel rtsLevel1">
<ul class="rtsUL">
<li class="rtsLI rtsFirst rtsLast">
<a class="rtsLink" href="../../../testseite">
<span class="rtsOut">
<span class="rtsIn">
<span class="rtsTxt">TestSeite</span>

Open in new window

    background-color: Fuchsia;

#RadTabStrip_topMenu ul
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
background-color: #007DB1;

#RadTabStrip_topMenu a
display: block;
color: #FFF;
background-color: #036;
width: 9em;
padding: .2em .8em;
text-decoration: none;

#RadTabStrip_topMenu a:hover
background-color: #369;
color: #FFF;

Open in new window

I read issues about that  is strange to change the default CSS of the RAD controls but before I contact the vendor I like to ask here for some support.
Is my CSS right and should it work in a normal HTML enviroment?

you have used # to define css whereas you have used classes for them. use . instead of #.
