Is there any way to reduce padding within table cells?

I'm working on a couple of pages within an enterprise Confluence installation, so I don't have access to the site-wide stylesheets.

I want to insert a long table into a wiki page I've made, and I need to reduce the padding on all the table cells.

So far I've been stymied. I'm able to use custom page-level CSS (through the macro) to address the table and the table-row, but my styles for the table-cell (where the padding declarations are needed) are always overwritten when the page renders. I've tried using very specific css selectors, and using "!important," but it seems like my css just get stripped out altogether.

The only way I can figure out to do this is to use the Adaptavist Table macro, but display in the editor is so cumbersome there is no way I could use this for my large table.

Is there anything else I can do?

Did you find an answer? I'd too like to shrink the whitespace around cells.
