How to overwrite an "!important" by a "MORE !important" CSS rule?

Assume I load a web page which contains a CSS stylesheet. I have no access to the webserver and the original CSS stylesheet but want to modify it by applying another, own CSS stylesheet after loading.

Normally this can be done by specifying an "!important" attribute. So

.someclass { 
    margin-left: 40px !important;
    width: 1280px !important;
}

overwrites the original

.someclass { 
    margin-left: 20px;
    width: 1024;
}

But what, if the original CSS already contains CSS rules with !important flag?
What I need is something like a !moreimportant attribute:

.someclass { 
    margin-left: 40px !moreimportant;
    width: 1280px !moreimportant;
}

How can I achieve this?

do...view source and save it, then edit that and add a style section at the end of head

I added the following to a clone of this page:

 

<style>
	body {
		max-width:600px;
		color:red;
		background-color:#404020;
		margin:auto;
	}
</style>

and this is the result:

feel free to ask if it's not clear what I did!
