It is possible that some CSS rules in the custom skin have the same specificity/weight as the rules in the base CSS file. From rules with the same specificity the one that is applied last will take effect. If the embedded skin is registered on the page using
then the styles form the base CSS are applied after
the custom skin styles. So, it can overwrite your styles. To prevent this you can use the RadStyleSheedManager
and refer to the sample project that I sent for more help.
Please also refer to these help articles for more detailed information:
1. Creating a custom skin
2. Skin registration
