Exceptions set up in BW query are not recognised by DS Crosstab?

I don't think DS is recognising exceptions I have set up on my BW query. There are two exceptions (Bad1, Critical1) set up and the data looks like this:

The initial view in Design Studio is not showing any colors, but I guess that is fine?

Now, I want to display data in a crosstab, but as you can see, no exceptions are visible:

I set Conditional Formatting to "true" in Properties, and use the following CSS code to target exceptions. They should be Bad1=4 and Critical1=7, but I wrote CSS code for all 1-9 to see if anything will get captured.

/* code for exceptions 1-9*/

.sapzencrosstab-DataCellAlert1Background,.sapzencrosstab-HeaderCellAlert1Background {color: #ff5958; !important;}

(and so on for exceptions 2-8...)

.sapzencrosstab-DataCellAlert9Background,.sapzencrosstab-HeaderCellAlert9Background {color: #fcb256; !important;}

Unfortunately, the code has no effect. Any ideas? I thought the code was clashing with other bits of the CSS for the crosstab, but I have commented out everything out, and the exceptions still won't take effect.

I think this is related to the issue I reported a couple of months ago, about Scorecard component not recognising my BW exceptions, where I was seeing blanks where the list of conditions should have been:

I think this is a bug, right?

I have managed to figure it out myself - despite no CSS class being assigned to my crosstab, it was getting contaminated by some incorrectly written CSS code, which was not assigned to a class properly.
