Overview

A wise decision when setting up your default stylesheet is to begin by removing the inconsistent default styling of HTML elements. Removing these inconsistencies right at the beginning will make life easier.

Getting Started

YUI provides a good base for accomplishing this, creating a level playing field across all major browsers. You can then build upon this base as you gain more experience.
