I just tested with Chrome 24 and the important seems to be working as expected. Here is a demo on jsFiddle. You should notice that the link color is blue, but the underline did not apply.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  .lnkjobref {color: Blue !important; text-decoration: underline;}
  #test1 {color: black;text-decoration: none;}
   <a href="#" id="test1" class="lnkjobref">Test Link</a>

!important works fine in Chrome but, this "dxgvControl_Office2003Blue a" will override this ".lnkjobref" even with !important because of the "a" targeting the href tag.

If you set your rule to just "dxgvControl_Office2003Blue" with the "a" on the end then you should see !important on the other class work just fine.
