    How to overwrite styles with CSS?


      I have a large number of older html documents (I use Dreamweaver CS3 Premium) that were originally built using "regular" styles. I have tried to overwrite these old styles with CSS but this doesn't work. I first delete the old styles, attach the CSS and then apply the new CSS style, but artifacts of the old style remain, such as text colour, background colour, even font size. This has become a major time problem as I have to undo each element of a style to an item before I can successfully apply the new CSS. As I have over a hundred of these files to update, this process is costing me an enormous amount of time. Surely there must be a better way to apply new styles. Any help would be much appreciated.
