body{
   font-size:14px!important;
}

Open in new window


But if you also use
body{
   font-size:14px!important;
}
p:font-size:18px!important;

Open in new window


The p tag will win.  Try placing your body{foo:bar!important;} as the very last css item.

Actually, that is wrong. In the example below, the p will still win.  

p{font-size:18px!important;}
body{
   font-size:14px!important;
}

Open in new window

You would have to do body p to over take the p only tag.
p{font-size:18px!important;}
body p{
   font-size:14px!important;
}

Open in new window
