Could you take a close look at the css code to remove the ones not necessary? For example, checking out the use of "p.para-style-override", "span.char-style-override", and others with the relevant xhtml file and come up with a better solution.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
strip superfluous css and html code. Just use clean, simple html tags (h1, h2, h3, p, em, and others)
Expert:  Bhavik Joshi replied 6 months ago.

Okay, I will start working on it soon .

Expert:  Bhavik Joshi replied 6 months ago.

I used tools and validated this sheet using option validate stylesheet using W3c but could not find any problem in it the CSS. Can you try that once and see if you are getting any errors.

I will look for those CSS code in html which are not used or obsolete.
