CSS for padding and spacing are not working for one class but working for the other

My CSS for padding and spacing seem to be ignored in the col2 class. col1 is working fine.

Thanks

The dark arts of CSS: I typically use Google Chrome to highlight the target class; that usually tells me what class to specify in the CSS. Sometimes, you need to accomodate nested or serially-defined classes to get a style to apply to it. Can you chop down your example to something smaller or provide a simple use case so it can be easily tried/tested?

Excellent point, thank you for pointing out my oversight. If I look in Firebug, the td has the class I assigned and then there is a paragraph tag.

Source:

<td class="col2">
<p> text text text </p>

CSS:

td.col2 { padding: 4px; }

However, there is the sneaky CSS:

.wiki-content p, .wiki-content table { padding: 0; }

GRRR...who would ever want padding=0!!! Thanks a bunch for your help.

That was my answer, thank you. I added .wiki-content p { padding: 4; } to my CSS and the spacing was finally correct. The formatting applied by p was overidding my CSS for td. This is another indication of Confluence adding p tags everywhere but I'm learning how to get around them.

So, what does it mean? Will you simply remove the superfluous <p> and that is it or are you still looking for some other kind of answer?
