I want to have a general css for all Html.EditorFor and Html.TextboxFor then specialize size when needed like so:

Problem: The width never changes to 75px

[HTML]
<td>@Html.EditorFor(x => x.Limit, new { @class="amount"})</td>

[CSS]
input[type=text]
    {
        border: 1px solid darkslategray;
        border-radius: 5px;
        -moz-border-radius: 5px;
        -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
        width: 150px;
        height: auto;
        color: darkslategray;
        font: normal 100% Arial;
    }

 input[type=text].amount
    {
        width: 75px;
    }

Note: The 'Html.EditorFor' is in a MVC4 EditorTemplate (if that makes any difference)...

[View Source]
<input class="text-box single-line" data-val="true" data-val-number="The field Limit must be a number." data-val-required="The Limit field is required." id="Budgets_0__Limit" name="Budgets[0].Limit" type="text" value="9.00" /></td>

Ahh you cannot override the defaults.
You could pass in the style directly e.g.
new { style = "width: 75px" }

Or if it is worth it

The width never changes if change the entire CSS to this:

[CSS]
 input[type=text].amount
    {
        width: 75px;
    }

try it as
   input.amount[type=text] {width:75px !important;}

But I think Gary may be right and you can't override the default even with an important hack.

You cannot pass in a custom class that way, it has its own classes that take precedence, and any new class you pass in will be ignored.
Either pass in the style directly (no class)
Or use the link I pointed to to make amendments in the objects.
