IE5.0+ follows the CSS2 cascading definition.

Subject: !important declarations in user style sheets

I understand that CSS1 specifies that !important declarations in an
style sheet take precedence over !important declarations in a user style
sheet, but that CSS2 reverses that to give precedence to the user:

CSS1 !important user < !important author
CSS2 !important user > !important author

Can anyone give me a quick run down on how browsers that support user
sheets handle this conflict? Do they follow CSS1 or CSS2?
