I setup a basic jquery accordion, but am having issues setting up custom icons. I tried with and without the jquery ui css, and from what I can tell I am using the correct syntax. But when I look at the icon in firebug, my custom style isnt being applied. What am I missing?

Example url -
	background-image: url(../webimages/master_accordion_arrows_sprite.gif) -11px left !important;
	width: 11px;
	height: 8px;
	background-image: url(../webimages/master_accordion_arrows_sprite.gif) top left !important;
	width: 11px;
	height: 12px;
jquery accordion...
$(document).ready(function() {
		$("#accordion").accordion("option", "autoHeight", false);
		$("#accordion").accordion("option", "icons", { 'header': 'accordion_up', 'headerSelected': 'accordion_down' });
