Applying Validation to CSS Elements

Applying Validation to CSS Elements

In the example you have in "How to apply CSS styles to form elements with Validation Toolkit" you are using tables and it works great with tables, I am referring to the red background color for the form field using class of "fail".

I am not using tables but using CSS for the entire form. How would I apply the background color when the validation kicks in to the element that already has a class. I have tried applying the style of the element using the ID and then using the class="fail" but that doesn't seem to work, I might be looking to hard.

you can assign two classes to an element by putting a space between each class name:
class="classOne classTwo"

or if you use an ID, make sure to change the css from a class:
.fail {}

to an ID:
