Hi,

I am trying to modify a CSS value from a sharepoint website. I've identified the tag, but obviously not the right CSS file.

Can someone give me a hint how the CSS files are bound together. I mean which CSS file overwrites wich CSS file, the CSS hierarchy of Sharepoint so to say.

Hi Sascha,
can you explain which tag/style you want to change? Do you perhaps have a screenshot what you want to achieve?

Normally the first resource you should look at is the site of Heather Solomon - as she is "the expert" for SharePoint and CSS. Unfortunately it looks like she has not yet updated her excellent CSS reference chart from 2010:

The order of CSS file list determines the processing sequence and any declaration with scope overlapping previous declarations replaces any property that falls within the scope.

However specificity trumps listing order so you probably need to consider how specificity work.  This article does a good job of drilling down through the pile of override rules:
