Default Ch 8: <asp:image> inside <a> & ext.CSS (pg. 274)

How do you create a zero border linked image utilizing a user control, <asp:Image> control, and an external style sheet that can be viewed site wide?††

Said another way...

I understand how the inline example works with the default zero border (style="border-width:0px;"), but how do I bypass the inline version with the external stylesheet based on the two themes discussed in the book?††

I also wanted to mention that I am brand new to web programming and I have found this book to be an excellent teaching tool.

Hi epc,

Because the style for the image is defined in-line, it takes precedence over any other CSS that has been set, either with an embedded or an external style sheet.
You can, however, override with !important (doesn't mean "not important" as it would in C# or JavaScript, but means "is important"). You can apply it like this:
Code:
img
{
  border: 2px solid red !important;
}
This overrides the in-line style on an image:

<img src="Plough.jpg" style="border: 9px solid green; />

So even if the image has an in-line style for a green, thick border, the img selector overrides this and gives the image a thinner, red border.

For more info: http://webdesign.about.com/od/css/f/blcssfaqimportn.htm

Cheers,

Imar
