    How can I override skin styles, I have custom skins, I take a std Skin and rename it and make small edits as required. I tell the control to use my skins by setting the enableembeddedskins to false and pointing the skin name to my skin.

    When I use Firebug to view the styles (so I can see which ones to change) a lot of stlyes are in the Webresource.axd file.  I cant seem to override them as they are the last styles to load and override mine.

    Hello Andy,

    You should increase the specificity of the selectors in your skin stylesheet - the other CSS is a base stylesheet that provides the "defaults" for all skins; unfortunately, it gets appended to the <head> and therefore, gets loaded after your CSS.

    The simplest way would be to add a tag to the selectors, e.g. rewrite all .RadMenu_YourCustomSkin to div.RadMenu_YourCustomSkin.

    Best wishes,
