Clearing a Browser’s default CSS stylesheet

Clear a browser’s default CSS stylesheet

Update: After working with it for a little while I prefer using Yahoo’s Reset CSS, Base CSS and a few custom values to Meyer’s version. I think he takes it too far (almost to the point of absurdity) with things like stripping the weight from the strong tag.

/* YUI Reset v2.6.0 */
html{color:#000;background:#FFF;}body,div,dl,dt,dd,ul,ol,li,h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,pre,code,form,fieldset,legend,input,textarea,p,blockquote,th,td{margin:0;padding:0;}table{border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;}fieldset,img{border:0;}address,caption,cite,code,dfn,em,strong,th,var{font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;}li{list-style:none;}caption,th{text-align:left;}h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6{font-size:100%;font-weight:normal;}q:before,q:after{content:'';}abbr,acronym{border:0;font-variant:normal;}sup{vertical-align:text-top;}sub{vertical-align:text-bottom;}input,textarea,select{font-family:inherit;font-size:inherit;font-weight:inherit;}input,textarea,select{*font-size:100%;}legend{color:#000;}del,ins{text-decoration:none;}
/* YUI Base v2.6.0 */
h1{font-size:138.5%;}h2{font-size:123.1%;}h3{font-size:108%;}h1,h2,h3{margin:1em 0;}h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,strong{font-weight:bold;}abbr,acronym{border-bottom:1px dotted #000;cursor:help;} em{font-style:italic;}blockquote,ul,ol,dl{margin:1em;}ol,ul,dl{margin-left:2em;}ol li{list-style:decimal outside;}ul li{list-style:disc outside;}dl dd{margin-left:1em;}th,td{border:1px solid #000;padding:.5em;}th{font-weight:bold;text-align:center;}caption{margin-bottom:.5em;text-align:center;}p,fieldset,table,pre{margin-bottom:1em;}input[type=text],input[type=password],textarea{width:12.25em;*width:11.9em;}

/* Custom */
table tr td
{
	border: none;
	vertical-align: top;
	text-align: left;
}

ul li ul /* Nested lists */
{
	margin: 0 0 0 40px;
}
