Need to break out of CSS formating.

P: 2
Hi. I've got a bit of a problem. I need to make several tables for a forum post. I can use HTML, but I cannot edit the HTML of the page itself outside of the post area. I cannot edit <head> or anything of the like, I can only add HTML. I have my own webspace so I can host my own files.

My problem is that the forum's CSS formating makes my table look like absolute crap. In addition to looking terrible it's almost impossible to read. So my question is, how can I make it so that my table does not use the CSS built into the page?

Well The only thing I can think of is if you were to find the CSS file of your forum and edit the table CSS part to your likings or you could delete it but then you would have to add a style thing to your tables each time. So I would say just edit your CSS file if you can.

Hope I helped!

In the table tag itself, you can add your own styling which will override anything else.

<table style="width:100px">
