Is the shortcode being replaced with the CSS you want to override? It  
might be easier to set a custom field, check for that in the theme,  
and then apply the CSS in the <head> instead of in the body of the  
post. You can even add a custom metabox with a form control for this  
if you want to make the UI nicer to use (i.e. a radio button for true/ 
false). Metaboxes store the data just like they do in custom fields.
