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.

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>
