@daileycon – I don’t mean any disrespect but your css has two things wrong with it.
1. It is not specific enough which means that css will change any and all occurences of the tag mark with that style. What if on the site there is or will have a “mark” tag that is not related to that highlight area?
2. Never use !important unless you absolutely have no other choice. It is bad practice.
I needed to remove all the yellow backgrounds. I don’t even know what the !important does and I can’t remember where I copied the code from. I’m going to change mine when I get home, I think transparent; is better too.
They should change this in the next update and make it standard. Does anyone like the yellow?
@ckdestef – if done correctly, it will most definitely work. So you may be pasted it in a wrong place where it is being override. It has to be pasted after the original declaration for it to work. Or the original style has an even higher specificity level and thus your override is not specific enough to override. But I can’t tell as I can’t see your site.
