CSS Not Rendering Properly...

Can someone take a look at http://testbed.mf-initiative.org/ and let me know why the word reporting isn't showing up as a different color.    The CSS it is calling from http://testbed.mf-initiative.org/Content/css/style.css.   It looks like it should work and if i do an inline style=color: #FFF it works just fine.    If I change the background color, it does render... Done beating my head against Monday.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Because your inline css takes precedent.  

 <span style="font-size: 55px; font-weight: bold; color:white; padding-left: 25px;">Portfolio Reporting</span>

Open in new window


Get rid of all the inline stuff and add it to a class.

.something{
 font-size: 55px; 
 font-weight: bold; 
 color:white; 
  padding-left: 25px;
}
.red{
 color:red;
}
 <span class="something">Portfolio <span class="red">Reporting</span></span>
