RadListBox uses UL, LI, SPAN / A and LABEL elements (the last one is in the checkboxes scenario).
It's not impossible for a generic selector that targets a / span / li elements to have higher specificity than the styles in RadListBox.
Of course, this is just a wild guess. To know for sure, we'll need to see the actual page with the actual computed styles.
