Is there any way to use the background colors of a TD tag class for instance (TD.beta) in a DIV directly copying that color from the other tag?

code:
TD.beta { background-color: #C9C79E; }
DIV.beta {background-color: "get background color from TD.beta class"}



Thanks,

You could just use

code:
.beta { background-color: #C9C79E; }

Yeah, no need to specify the element in the CSS.

The people up stream that wrote the stylesheet weren't nice enough to make a tag like that. And if I add my own tag like that, then I'll have to write a new stylesheet for every theme that they use.

Huh? Tag like what? Oh, do you mean ".beta" class?

Another option would have been

td.beta, div.beta { background-color: #C9C79E; }

maybe that helps?

First of all, *please* don't call it a tag - it's a style declaration, which is very very different from a tag.

Secondly - if the stylehseet is already in existence, and you're adding things to it, why do you need to have it grab the previous value....?

I would have a talk with the people "upstream"
