I really don’t like the !important syntax.
Logically weird and I don’t like such stupid productive thinking stoppers in my mind.
Was the first author and the collegues in the CSS1 consortium accepting it from spain because in their languages they use inverted “!”-sign in front of sentences like “!blabla blabla!” and in questions “?blabla blabla?” the inverted question character?
Further this syntax is redundant:
! means in sentences imporant.
important means -well- imporant. ;-)
So it is “important important”.
