Expression Studio 4.0

Increases the weight or importance of a particular declaration.


{ sRule !important }

Possible values


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>

Standards information

This declaration is defined in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Level 1 (CSS1) Ee371209.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png.
