Increases the weight or importance of a particular declaration.

{ sRule!important }


Any CSS attribute/value pair.

The following example includes an !important declaration in the style rule. Normally the color of the text would be red, because inline styles override the rules set in a style tag. By including the !important declaration in the style rule, you set the color of the content of the paragraph to green:

    p {color:green!important}
<p style="color:red">This text will be green.</p>
