    Each field when displayed in the post information is wrapped in a dl tag and has a custom class that you can use EXTRA.css to style it with:
    <dl class="pairsJustified userField_drives">
        <dd>VX 220</dd>
    .messageUserBlock .extraUserInfo .userField_drives {
    color: blue;

    You can't, it's a global setting.
