An example or brief tutorial would be really handy here. I have never been able to get this to work.

Yes, an example of using the CSS tab of Block Design to override styling within the block.

Completely agree - the CSS tab in a block design is a complete mystery to me. I have tried so many way to get it to do anything, but nothing ever happens. How do you use it??

Ok.
Step 1: Don't use it.
Step 2: To style a Block create a new template
Create new directories and place new template in
/blocks/block_handle/templates/my_new_template.php

Step 3: Place this in your new template
<style>
  .my-template-wrapper .block-class h2 {
    /* this is just an example */  
    color: #44ff77;
  }
</style>
<div class="my-template-wrapper">
<?php
  $bvt = new BlockViewTemplate($b);
  $bvt->setBlockCustomTemplate(false);
  include($bvt->getTemplate());
?>
</div>

Step 4: Select "My New Template" from the custom templates for that block


**Change "my-template-wrapper" to something useful as well as my_template_name. .block-class is just a an example. You should replace this with whatever block specific classes you are targeting.
