I'm trying to style blockquotes please help.

I'm trying to style blockquotes but nothing is showing up to change my current style.

This is the new code I tried.

/* ---------------------------------------------------*/
/* --------------- blockquotes  --------------*/

blockquote {
font-family: Georgia, serif;
font-size: 18px;
font-style: italic;
width: 500px;
margin: 0.25em 0;
padding: 0.25em 40px;
line-height: 1.45;
position: relative;
color: #383838;
}

ALSO, I have the background set to be Fixed but its scrolling. I'm using a plugin to set individual bg's on any page or post its called Fully Backround but it stopped working in that I cant set images to Fixed anymore.
