I'm trying to customize the appearance of my Gitit wiki, by making changes to static/css/custom.css, but my changes are having no effect.
For instance, as a really gross test, I did this:

p, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, ul, ol {
    font-family: serif;
    font-style: italic;
}

However, I'm still seeing my headers rendered in sans-serif, non-italic font.

Any help would be most appreciated. :)

Page titles have a special class .pageTitle on them;
that may be why you're not seeing anything...

Thanks, John.

Please, disregard this topic.
The problem turned out to be a caching issue with my browser (Safari).
In case anyone else wanders down the same path:

  • The latest version of Safari is missing the Empty Caches option from the Safari menu.
  • That menu item now lives under the Develop menu, which isn't normally present.
  • You can add the Develop menu, via the Safari => Preferences => Advanced dialog.
  • Note: Until you do add the Develop menu the Cmd-Opt-E key combo does NOTHING!
    (Once you add Develop, that key combo empties the caches.)
