cannot add new effects to css file
I am working on a site with a stylesheet named sciencetral.css. Now it has a bunch of text effects that show up using the <span class=""> tag. But when I try to add something like a new text effect using the EXACT same format as already in the file, the new text effects are not detected in the page. So I make
entry into my stylesheet but then if I try to do a <span class ="warning"> nothing happens and I get the default text. For some reason I can make changes to the existing functions and the effects take place but I cant add any new functions. Can anyone explain why this happens?
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Only problem i see is that you put a space between '=' and ''.

Thats not it. I can replace the text in side existing working <span class> tags and experience the same problem

If this is an external CSS, make sure that you have really refreshed your web-page. Your browser will use the cached version until told to do otherwise.
