css "*" (star) declaration cannot be overridden

Asked by hahaha on 2010-09-05

Hello,

I notice there is a css star declaration in style.css like so (the very first declaration)
<code>
* {
  font-family: "bitstream vera sans", "dejavu sans", verdana, sans-serif;
  color: #111111;
  clear: none;
}
</code>

I am unfamiliar with it, but it seems it makes it difficult to change table header colors for example as all letters go by that color. :)
