I have a question regarding CSS styles. I made a level 2 menu for my project using my own theme and templates,
and although my layout.css and typography.css specify clearly 'font-style:normal;' the result is an italic text.
I dont know where this is coming from, are there any other style sheets SS inherits declarations from,
when displaying text? If yes, where are these style sheets located to check them?

Thank you!

get yourself firebug, a plugin for firefox that shows you which css definitions apply to an html element and in which css file they are located.
