Styling that has been applied with global CSS Classes can be overridden if you add an ID attribute to the containing span or div.
Some times you need to “push” against an empty div, you can use a div with an empty value like this.
Precedence of CSS Style Rules:
CSS style rules cascade in the sense that global style rules continue to apply to HTML elements unless local style rules supplant them. In general, local style rules take precedence over general style rules. This means, for example, that a style defined in a STYLE block within a Web page can revise for that one page a Web site style defined in an external CSS style sheet. Similarly, an in-line style defined within a single HTML tag on that page can revise for one line any styles defined for that same element elsewhere.
Portions of global style rules not contradicted by local CSS style rules will continue to apply to HTML elements even after local styles are applied. In the example above, the local CSS styles governing text between <H1> tags replace some of the Web browser’s global style rules for <H1> text (center <H1> text and make it red), but they do not change others (display all <H1> text in a larger font and bolded). Both global and local style rules are applied, in that order, making all the <H1> text on this page display in a larger font and bolded, and centered and red.

You can disable strong name valildation on an assembly using the Strong Name tool that comes with Visual Studio.
Open the Visual Studio Command Prompt. This should be available on Start, All Program Files, Visual Studio 200x, Visual Studio Tools.
At the command prompt:
SN -Vr “c:\location of the assembly\myassembly.dll”
To re-enable verification:
SN -Vu “c:\location of the assembly\myassembly.dll”
