Simply, I always think of it as a list replacement rules -- the order
makes the difference.
Rule A -- something is green and left justified.
Rule B -- something is red with margin 1em;
Rule C -- something with margin-top 2em;
While "something" will remain left-justified in all circumstances,
the color and margin will depend upon what rule is read in what order.
That's cascading to me.
