You can't "clear" the CSS for an element, you can only change it with a new definition.  Even then it is only for the individual items.  Changing, for example the font-family or the font-size doesn't affect any other CSS definitions that have been applied to that element.

ok, thank you

I have one more question...

Why would my CSS style sheet only update if I upload it to the server? I can't see any changes on my local Intranet.

CSS and javascript files are often stuck in the browser cache.  I have had to load them directly before my browser would recognize a new version.  I have resorted occasionally to changing the file name each time so my browser would see it as a new file.
