I am having a problem giving style to a list item with an id in the external css file?

Question by Alok: I am having a problem giving style to a list item with an id in the external css file?
i had given ids to different list items for eg. li id=”add” for giving an picture to them using the background css property. It worked properly. But when I am adding rules to the same id for ex. li#add { background:url (—); border:none; }, it doesn’t work. Hence for removing the border I have to use inline css. Any solutions?

Best answer:

Answer by justice G
There could be a few problems, but first of all double and triple check your CSS for errors. Second, if you’ve declared styles to those list items early in your document or somewhere else where the selector might have been given more weight the latter styles will be overridden for ex.:

body ul li{

as opposed to


The styles applied to the first example will override that of the second, so remember to add some extra weight on there if you can, be specific, for ex.:

body #pagewrap ul #add{


One other option is to add !important to your styles, that should override the other styles no matter how much weight they have. for ex.:

display: inline !important;

That should do it.

Align properties in CSS (left, right, centre?!)?

Question by Jorm: Align properties in CSS (left, right, centre?!)?
How do you guys deal w/ the demand of centre property in CSS? And I’m not speaking about text alignment, rather content such as images or divs.

The thing is that whenever I design a page, it looks fine in my resolution, but when I use a smaller or larger one then the layout looks horrible. A friend suggested I make SEPARATE CSS style for different resolutions and using javascript to detect the user’s resolution. I think that’s rubbish and there’s got to be a more practical way.

Thanks for any tips/suggestions.

Any tips on this? I’m having a hard time w/ this.

Best answer:

Answer by Charlie
To center things in CSS, just use

margin: auto; or
text-align: center;

Question by Goues: Hi, is there any plugin for webkit (Chrome) to show css properties like moz-*?
i started using user-Styles for some pages like Facebook. However, those style are usually prefabricated for Mozilla Firefox so there’s a lot of moz-* properties. I would like to see them too, using my favorite Chrome. Is theere any plugin?

Best answer:

Answer by rb3m
No, but you can use the webkit-* equivalents, which are usually the same. You can just write:

-moz-blah blah;

and then:

-webkit-blah blah;
