Yes. But why does your Subject line ask a completely different question, and
one that asks for something logically impossible (Cascading Style Sheets
without cascade)?

Beware that any CSS-related question containing the word "cascade" or
"inherit" in some form contains at least one fundamental misconception.

> Example:


> <ul>
> <li style="open">one

Why not post at least real code?

If "open" stands for some style sheet, then it all depends on what it
contains. Hence my request for a URL or at least real code. Some properties
are inherited under some conditions, some are not.

Toggle? Tags? You sound confused, as expected.

Unfortunately, it seems that you have to start learning what CSS is.

That's something completely different.
