Preview nothing like Live view


How do I block the CSS rules for the site from being applied to the editable regions populated by PowerCMS.

The content looks fine in the preview in the admin panel but looks terrible when viewing live.

Please see attached as an example.

use unique ID's and classes in your CSS Rules, and place the CMS Content in an area that is not controlled by your site CSS.

another option is to add CSS to the area that the content is in to over ride the styles that are causing the issue.

From the screen shoot, it looks like the problem is line height. so add a style to the div you apply the content to set a larger line height.
