can't overwrite styles
Tags: css

For some reason I can't overwrite the default styles in cforms.css. I grabbed the ID of my form and have tried to overwrite with the following:


#cforms2form {
width: auto;
#cforms2form .cf-fs1 .cf-ol .cform label {
width: 120px;
#cforms2form .cf-fs1 .cf-ol .cform label span {
width: 120px;

The only one that sticks is the first one where I changed the width. But
I have no luck with changing the label and span widths. The ID should
take precedence over everything.

When I use Firebug to view the source and click on cforms.css file I can
see my styles are in the stylesheet, but are obviously being totally ignored.

Anyone else run into this problem, or know what I'm doing wrong?

NM. I'm an idiot. I had my path wrong for the style. Doh!
