Your question was easy to understand. Maybe you wanted to ask some other

Then why did you ask whether it is possible to change it?

Stop wanting that. Problem solved.
There are good reasons why you should not try to change the appearance,
no matter how ugly it looks like to you. (One of the minor reasons is
that when people try to do that, they end up with something much

So you would like to restrict the effect of a style sheet rule to one
part of the presentation of an element, right? Such things are possible
in CSS in limited cases, such as using the :first-letter pseudo-element,
but there is nothing remotely resembling this at present. Browsers have
their oddities, and if you throw a sufficient amount of imaginative or
just random CSS rules at them, they might some day do something like
that, but that should be considered as a bug.
