The way you add styles is the Seaside way of doing it. That's fine and
works well with Pier. However, the styles in 'Edit Design' are part of
Pier itself, so these are editable from within Pier.

Ahh okok. This would be method one from here: http://onsmalltalk.com/pragmatic-css-and-javascript-in-seaside. Am I correct ?

It depends on the CSS selectors you use and on the order you define them:

1. CSS selectors have different weights
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/cascade.html). The more specific a
selector is, the higher its weight. With "!important" you can make a
definition override anything else, but I would only use this as a last

2. If the weight of several selectors is the same, it depends on the
order. Seaside libraries always come first, then the custom styles
from components and from Pier in the order they render.

thanks for this :)

Remove the style in "Edit Design" if you use your own CSS in a WAFileLibrary.

Or don't use the WAFileLibrary and replace the style in "Edit Desing"
with your own.

Ok. This is my main problem. I am mixin two strategies.

Thanks for the help. I will put all in my library :)
