This is a feature, not a bug. Its called CSS specificity.

Although, the link[1] seems to suggest it should be 100, not 256... that might be a bug.

Read the spec instead. It says "in a number system with a large base". I suspect the unspecific wording is on purpose (to allow optimisation for sane conditions), but it should be fairly clear that the intent is that classes cannot override ids.

"255 classes should be enough for everyone"?
