    Styling an Individual Element Already Styled in a Stylesheet

    Hi, I have a list of tabs the headers (H2) of which are styled in a stylesheet, I now want to style an individual tab to be a certain color but cant seem to be able to do this.
    When I set the color locally the stylsheet style overides anything?

    HTML

    Code:
    <div class="tabber">
    
    	<div class="tabbertab">
    
    		<h2>Title I want to change</h2>
                    <p>Content
    		</p>
    		
    	</div>
    
    	<div class="tabbertab">
    
    		<h2>Title 2</h2>
                    <p>Content
    		</p>
    		
    	</div>
    
    	</div>
    CSS

    Code:
    .tabberlive .tabbertabhide {
    	display: none;
    	}
    
    .tabber {
    	padding: 0px;
    	}
    
    .tabberlive {
    	margin-bottom: 10px;
    	}
      
    ul.tabbernav {
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0px 0;
    	color: #202020;
    	font-size: 12px;
    	font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
    	font-weight: normal;
    	}
    
    ul.tabbernav li {
    	list-style: none;
    	margin: 0;
    	display: inline;
    	}
    
    ul.tabbernav li a {
    	padding: 3px 0.5em;
    	border-bottom: none;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	}
    
    ul.tabbernav li a:link {
    	color: #202020;
    	background: #DDDDDD;
    	margin: 0px 5px 0px 0px;
    	}
    	
    ul.tabbernav li a:visited {
    	color: #202020;
    	background: #DDDDDD;
    	}
    	
    
    ul.tabbernav li a:hover {
    	background: #666666;
    	color: #FFFFFF;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	}
    
    ul.tabbernav li.tabberactive a {
    	background: #333333;
    	color: #FFFFFF;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	}
    
    ul.tabbernav li.tabberactive a:hover {
    	background: #333333;
    	color: #FFFFFF;
    	}
      
    .tabberlive .tabbertab {
    	background: #FFFFFF;
    	padding: 10px 0px 0px 0px;
    	}
    	
    .tabberlive .tabbertab h2 {
    	display: none;
    	}
    	
    .tabberlive .tabbertab h3 {
    	display: none;
    	}
    
    .tabbertab cite {
    	font-size: 11px;
    	margin: 0px;
    	padding: 0px;
    	}
    How could I set the H2 Title so I could style just that one?

    Give it a class or id
    The following will work in modern browsers, except IE
    Code:
    .tabber .tabbertab:nth-of-type(1) h2 {color:red;}

    Yes. You may style it locally. Not an elegant solution, but a sure one.

    Hi the problem is even when I change the header locally the css overides the style, ie:
    <h2 style="font-size:18px; color:red">
    Doesnt make a difference
    The tabber section is using javascript to set css styles dynamically could this be a factor?

    Yes, the JavaScript will be overriding the style.
    Give a link or full code.

    Code:
    .tabber .tabbertab { all of them }
    .tabber .tabbertab:first-child{ first one only}
