CSS

Do we able to override the style applied by parent css with child css

my web page renders a css from the parent template. where i could see something like below: html:not(.webfont):not(.webactivefont) * { color:transparent !important; } this makes all the element of my page to be transparent in color, i tried overriding like below in my new css: html:not(.webfont):not(.webactivefont) * { color:white !important; } this makes all the element of my page to be white in color, but i recommend my web page to accumulate the color value provided for each element not the same.

Additional info: My application is a React Application, where i have a dependency 'template' added in my package.json, this template renders a css file, which makes the color to be trasparent, or is there any way in react to avoid the css of the tempates not be be added to the webpack

When you say, "this makes all the element of my page to be white in color" that seems like the override is working correctly.

But I'm not quite sure what you mean by "i recommend my web page to accumulate the color value provided for each element not the same." β€” could you state that another way and/or show the code involved?

I'll have to leave the other question for someone else, as I'm not familiar with React.
