Re: Overriding a css style loclly

I can do that but the thing I was trying for is to handle it in a
global way. This way I do not have to apply style locally to each
label widget and there are too many of them. What I was striving for
is that for all the labels in app, apply my overridden style of .gwt-
Label however for all the labels that are present in the context of a
given ui.xml (UI binder file), apply a different .gwt-Label.
