Type but not IDs

Im wondering if its possible to style all my labels on a page, but not those of a particular ID:-
eg:-
    label :not(#lblTypeCompany) :not(#lblTypeVinci) {
        width:200px;
        background-color:blue;
    }

Open in new window


I know the above code doesnt work, but hopefully it will describe what Im doing.

Going forward I could say 'not default style' as something like:-
    label :not(.defaultStyle) {
        width:200px;
        background-color:blue;
    }

Open in new window


But obviously I dont know if this is even possible yet.

Thank you

you can do the first thing, but not the second thing.

label:not(#lblTypeCompany),
label:not(#lblTypeVinci) {
        width:200px;
        background-color:blue;
    }

You might be able to do the second thing with a preprocessor like SASS

Both are fine but remove the spaces

    label:not(#lblTypeCompany):not(#lblTypeVinci) {
        width:200px;
        background-color:blue;
    }


    label:not(.defaultStyle) {
        width:200px;
        background-color:blue;
    }

please clarify whst you mean by "not(.defaultstyle)"

what Gary is suggesting is that labels which do not have the "defaultStyle" class will get the specified properties.

but if what you're looking for is to remove some styling defined by the .defaultStyle{} rule somewhere in the css file, then such syntax does not exist in plain CSS
