You should specify the original h3-style so that it will only select
h3-elements of a certain class.
All the user-h3 has to do then is to not use that class.

You could also inherit by using a div-wrapper, in case you don't want to
include classes in each author-h3.

For example, in the HTML:

    <div class="myStyle">
        <h3>Text in my style</h3>
    <div class="userStyle">
        <h3>Text in user Style</h3>

And the CSS:
    .myStyle h3
        letter-spacing: 2px;
        /* etc. */

Depending on the CSS-property, there are also the values "inherit",
"normal", "auto" or "none" (no quotes).
