[thelist] CSS Inheritance

I would say your main problem is the fact you are using tables.
Not only are tables a very inefficient way to format a page, tables are also
inherently bad with CSS support.

But as is try:
table#tariff{padding: 2px 2px 2px 15px;}

I have a web page which uses css.

I have a main table with an id mainTable and the td tag for the site is set
to padding: 20px;

#mainTable td {padding: 20px;}

The problem is that I want a table inside the main table where I can reset
the padding. Is it possible to do this.

my page is at http://www.thewhinsstandrews.com and the problem area is the
tariff section.

	width: 50%;
	border-left: 1px solid #C0C0C0;
	border-top: 1px solid #C0C0C0;
	background-color: #FBF4B9;


#tariff td
 	padding: 2px 2px 2px 15px;
	background-color: cyan;
	white-space: nowrap;
