Combining bootstrap with other css

The lower part is using my own css. For the upper version, I have added bootstrap bootstrap css. As you can see this addition has totally messed up my original css despite the fact my own css comes last.BootstrapQuestion.pngQuestion: How can I have bootstrap css included and also keep my original format?

FYI, I want to have bootstrap css included to use it fr some other bootstrap-specific functionality later on. This mean, I do not want to overwrite the added css but to keep my font formats as before.

The attached zip file is included in case you want to see more of it.

I think you have it backward. I look at the html in Firebug and all of the css controlling font-size in bootstrap.css is being overridden by the resume.css.

Your images are reversed. Take out font-size:90% from resume.css line 4
body {
    color: rgb(89, 89, 89);
    font-family: "Tahoma","sans-serif";
    font-size: 90%;
}
and you get what is in the bottom image. Leave it in and you get the top image.

This did the trick. BTW, the images were not reversed.

Thanks,

You say in the top image that with Bootstrap.css added you were getting altered fonts and formats. Not so. With resume.css added you were getting the altered fonts and formats. Take out resume.css and the bottom image, with bootstrap.css styling, is what you get. That's what I meant by reversed images.

Glad you got it worked out. Thanks for the points.

Now, I was able to add some <abbr> tags and it works. But with control tab, I will need some help. I will post new questions on that with a link messaged to you.
