In development lately, I’ve been including the CSS Reset stylesheet from Yahoo as just a basic setup of my page. It super simple as you can just link to the one on their development site.
<link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“http://yui.yahooapis.com/2.3.1/build/reset/reset-min.css”>
The idea being that you shouldn’t need to write excess CSS just to eliminate different browser defaults. The browser defaults have a purpose sure, but they just aren’t needed anymore in todays day and age of CSS.
Another option to consider is Tripoli which tries to make the defaults even a bit elegant, though I haven’t used it yet so I can’t vouch for it.1 comment
