The {style} macro doesn't seem to work

This is my test page

{style}
ppp{
text-align: center;
color:#FF0000;
font-size-adjust: 2;
}
{style}


* this doesn't work:
{span:style=ppp} Hello world{span}


* this (sort of -- text-align property doesn't) works :



{span:style=color:#FFF000; font-size-adjust:2; font-family:serif; text-align:center } Hello distinguished citizens of the world {span}

Can anyone explain why the style macro isn't working?

Likely you need to do this instead:

{style}
.ppp { /* the dot/period denotes a class selector */
text-align: center;
color:#FF0000;
font-size-adjust: 2;
}
{style}
{span:class=ppp} Hello world{span} 

Yep, that should do it - not the 'class' parameter for {span} also, very important! :)

Sorry, but I don't understand this comment -- would you clarify?

Is it possible to do this in Confluence 4.0 still? I am not able to currently.

That will depend on if Adaptavist has released their update for the Complex Formatting Plugin. Check with them is my suggestion.

Your changes worked -- I was following an example (that I can no longer find).
