Hello,

[nightly-unstable]
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/html-precedence-005.htm

User stylesheet has:

.green { color: green; }


<p><font color="red" class="green">This text should be green.</font></p>

color="red" is supposed to be converted into an author rule with a
specificity of 0 since

"
these [non-CSS presentational hints] attributes are translated to the
corresponding CSS rules with specificity equal to 0, and are treated as
if they were inserted at the start of the author style sheet.
"
6.4.4 Precedence of non-CSS presentational hints
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/cascade.html#preshint

And non-!important author rules wins over (has precedence over)
non-!important user rules :

"
In ascending order of precedence:

2.  user normal declarations
3.  author normal declarations
"
6.4.1 Cascading order
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/cascade.html#cascading-order

So, importance and origin decide for that sentence regardless of
specificity of selector.

So, that sentence should be red, not green.

regards, Gérard
