i have a css that defines all paragraphs but if i do

<p><span style=color:#0000ff;>this is a test</span></p>

I would expect it to change the text color but it doesn't
is there a reason why?

You need to wrap the style settings in parentheses:


<p><span style="color:#0000ff;">this is a test</span></p>

that made no difference - it's taking the default from what the p is set to

And they meant quotes by the way not parentheses :rolleyes:. Post the rest of your a code.

it could be that the browser doesn't pick up the color or something... see demo and attached pic (works fine)


<html>
<head>
<title>Starbuzz Coffee</title>
<style type="text/css">
#wrapper{width:400px;}

#two{width:200px; height:200px; float:left; background:black;}
#three{width:200px; height:200px; float:left; background:black;}
#four{width:200px; height:200px; float:left; background:purple;}
p{color:yellow;}
</style>
</head>
<body>


<div id="wrapper">
<div id="one">one</div>
<div id="two"><p>two</p></div>
<div id="three"><p><span style="color:white;">three</span></p></div>
<div id="four">four</div>
