Reset Reloaded

After a bit of time to bake and a few more suggestions from readers, I have what I’m willing to call the final version of my take on the topic of reset styles.  To wit:

html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe,
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,
a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code,
del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp,
small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var,
dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,
fieldset, form, label, legend,
table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	border: 0;
	outline: 0;
	font-weight: inherit;
	font-style: inherit;
	font-size: 100%;
	font-family: inherit;
	vertical-align: baseline;
}
/* remember to define focus styles! */
:focus {
	outline: 0;
}
body {
	line-height: 1;
	color: black;
	background: white;
}
ol, ul {
	list-style: none;
}
/* tables still need 'cellspacing="0"' in the markup */
table {
	border-collapse: separate;
	border-spacing: 0;
}
caption, th, td {
	text-align: left;
	font-weight: normal;
}
blockquote:before, blockquote:after,
q:before, q:after {
	content: "";
}
blockquote, q {
	quotes: "" "";
}

So what changed from the last iteration?

  1. I added background: transparent; to the first rule.  It’s probably not as necessary as some of the other bits here, but it seemed like a good thing to add.

  2. Added a :focus rule to try to suppress link outlining.  Why?  So that you remember to define your own.  You should make sure to define an outline, as it’s an important accessibility aid.  If you have a universal default, one that applies no matter what the project, then replace my rule with your own.

  3. There’s now a body rule that sets a baseline line-height that will be inherited by the rest of the document (and can be overridden easily), and sets a foreground and background color.  Originally, I avoided setting the colors, but decided it was better to put them in.  Of course, if you have preferred color defaults other than black on white, edit the declarations to suit your taste.

  4. The a img, :link img, :visited img rule has been dropped.  This is because the only browser family it really affects is Gecko line, and they all honor author styles as having precedent over user agent styles (as they should!).  So this is already covered by the first rule.

  5. Added a rule for caption, th, td to be left-aligned and normal-weight.

  6. Added a blockquote, q rule to suppress quotes by way of the quotes property.  This has the same intent as the previous rule, but approaches it along a different route.

I also asked for help in figuring out how to simulate inherit in IE/Win.  In the end, it seems to me like doing so isn’t really necessary for most people.  As I said before:

[The inherit] effects, as seen in my development environment, will still serve the purpose of reminding me to build up the styles I actually want, and not use the browsers’ defaults as a crutch. There is the possibility of my forgetting that (for example) IE/Win italicizes em when I don’t want it to, but that’s something I’ll catch during the browser testing phase.

So that works for me, and I think for most people who have outlooks similar to mine.  But maybe you develop primarily in IE/Win, or you really want to have IE/Win handle as many of these resets as humanly possible.  In that case, you have two basic choices.

  1. Use the script and syntax contributed by Jonathan Snook and Dean Edwards.  Note, however, that Dean himself doesn’t recommend doing this, feeling that it’s too computationally expensive for such a small effect.  Dean has a lot of experience with scripting around IE/Win’s limitations, so I give his views on this a lot of weight.  On the other hand, I’d like to see IE/Win be able to honor inherit, or at least get the same behavior, so I might still use the script.  (Though I’d be even happier with a script that just tacked itself onto instance of inherit in a style sheet, like Dean’s IE7 script does for other CSS stuff.)

  2. Put in your own expressions, along the lines suggested by Priit and thacker.  It’s not quite the same thing, but it’s a pretty decent approximation.

Like I say, these aren’t necessary unless you’re really sold on the idea of IE/Win being forced into line with everyone else and don’t mind paying the computational overhead.  If so, then you can extend your own reset styles as needed.

That’s much of the point here: that this is not a case of “everyone must use these styles in a certain way without alteration”.  Nor am I saying that everyone must use them or else be cast into darkness.  Remember before that I termed these “my take on the topic of reset styles” (emphasis added).  Your take may be subtly or greatly different.  Think of these as a starting point for creating your own defaults, in addition to being a way to illuminate the nature of browser defaults.  Simply the act of taking those defaults into consideration and thinking about them closely puts you ahead of 99% of your peers.  I do think that reset styles are quite useful; otherwise, I wouldn’t have written about them here, and certainly not to the extent that I have.  My hope is that people will use them as a launch pad for their own resets and for deeper thinking about styling and browsers.

My thanks to everyone who commented, not just those I linked above.  And yes, I’m going to get to that “weirdness of form elements” post in the near future.

Addendum 2 May 07: I edited the CSS to change background: transparent to background-image: transparent, as it was supposed to be from the outset but I somehow didn’t see in any of the three times I looked over the declarations.  So I guess that makes this post now “final.0.1″.

Addendum 4 May 07: background-image: transparent?  There’s a big ol’ WTF.  Apparently my cold medication has warped me a lot more than I believed.  I’ve taken out that whole declaration and will not be editing the styles any further until I’m off the meds.  So, not quite final, apparently.

    I must say that I am equally as impressed with this as I am by the refining process. It was very pleasing to read the comments, to see how input helped shape the reset. Kudos to you for being so open and objective. I really am very impressed that you do not seem to subscribe much to the “Cult of Meyer” (I do, even though the robes we wear are a bit funky) and remain very open to comments and constructive criticism. You remain tremendously helpful. Thanks for this; I’ll be deploying it in my next project.

    Another “blatantly ignorant” question. What is the best way to use this? Should you have a “resets.css” page that you link to and then link to another page that has your css? Or do you modify the “resets” as you go?

    Thanks for the time you put into this Eric.

    Though I’m going to be sticking with the “Universal Reset” for the time being, the refinements you made with the table, :focus and blockquote elements are great as I invariably end up writing something like that but then have to do battle with the CSS. Nice to get those things cleared off-the-bat.

    Tim–

    The way I am using it .. understand that I am not an expert so take it in that vein, please.

    I use the reset as a separate style sheet with a designated media type of projection and screen. [I have done this until I gain some insight into the impact upon hand-held and print devices of this reset. Braille media types generally ignore CSS, if not mistaken.]

    I use a significantly modified reset on some existing content where I have depended upon a few browser defaults, ie. list and definition types. Again, it is a separate style sheet.

    Meyer has sold me on the issues of tossing browser dependency default styles and of the logic behind semantics.

    During development, I toss in the inherit JavaScript IE CSS within a conditional commented style sheet. This may very well be overkill but before deployment to a production server, the IE JavaScript CSS is removed.

    From there, individual style sheets are added to style the specific content.

    Thanks for the clarification thacker! That was going to be my initial approach but then I wondered about which style would be applied. I know if you assign the same element different styles on the same stylesheet it takes the last one, but I didn’t know how to ensure that it would take “my” style (as opposed to the reset style) when they are on different sheets.

    Why not add padding: 0; to the td’s styles instead of requiring old-style markup? I’ll admit that I don’t know if IE will honor it in quirks mode, but I’d be willing to bet that anyone using the reset CSS will be putting IE into standards mode anyway.

    Hi!
    In first rule better is:

    font-size:62.5%;

    Why? All popular browsers has default font size equal 16px. If we set font size equal 62.5% then font size is equal 10px at screen (but not set 10px, IE6 not resize this rule). Now we have 1em = 10px, so 1..1em=11px etc. It is easyer way to calculate font size.

    // sorry for terrible language.

    I know it doesn’t really matter, but why are “font” and “s” included in the first rules tag list? No one should really be using these, as they’re depreciated, and if you include these, then why no the likes of “strike”, “u”, and “center”? For the same reason, why “applet”?

    Jack: The word is deprecated (expressed the disapproval of) rather than depreciated (reduced purchasing value) although a enough people seem to mix them up that it’s in danger of changing the meaning and blurring the distinction between the two.

    While I like the idea of this stylesheet, I’m not sure I’m happy with the effect on the <q> element. While I see the reasoning, the web has been held back a lot by people pandering to IEs inability to meet particular standards. Removing the expected styling will cause people to either not use <q> (There’s no point – it does nothing) or use it incorrectly by adding their own quotation marks.

    Why, thanks Eric, this looks sweet. My only suggestion would be to exclude the ol-tag from the margin reset because it will disable the browser to automatically determine the space needed based on how much space the numeration actually needs. Defining this manually is fine as long as you have control over the number of li-tags inside any given ol but if you have to deal with ol’s of varying length it can be helpful to leave this to the browser.

    It seems that background:transparent in the first rule breaks the following rule in Explorer 6:

    #head {
    padding-bottom:10px;
    background:url(/cimg/bkg_head.png) repeat-x 0 100%;
    }

    About every other time I reload the page, only half of the background image is shown. It helps if I give my #head-element layout, but if I remove background:transparent it works without giving layout.

    @Philippe and Holger
    If you use the Firebug extension in Firefox and select any element in a page with any * or html * declaration, you will notice the style is computated in each and everyone parent element to the one you are inspecting. It undoubtedly must create some computational overhead, and should probably be avoided.
    But I’m not 100% sure on this, and probably Eric could clarify this one.

    Some one-to-one responses. A couple of one-to-many responses (on universal selection, form elements, etc.) to follow, either as a comment or a post.

    Jason: table cells have their padding zeroed in the first rule.

    Philippe: ah, but border: 0; is functionally equivalent to border: none solid 0;, so I did what you suggest, only with three fewer characters.

    Jeff: an interesting suggestion, but I’m deeply wary of messing with the browser’s UI (as opposed to default document layout). One interesting fence case is the underlining of links: I intentionally don’t reset link decoration. It’s just too much like a UI behavior. My choice probably makes total sense to some, and is total nonsense to others—but the latter can always add a decoration reset.

    Trey: not so far as I know. It would be nice, wouldn’t it? If someone comes up with a really good reset rule for <hr />s, I’d love to see it.

    Brownspank: please see “Unitless Line Heights“.

    Oliver: yes, that will happen without addding in the IE inherit simulators mentioned in the second half of the post. There’s no other way to un-bold them without endangering the usual inheritance behavior, as documented in earlier posts on this topic.

    Jack: I included deprecated elements that are inline, and things like applet and embed because they still get used an awful lot. I can’t really explain why I left out center (for example) and kept font. So, in the absence of any clear reason, feel free to make the alterations that suit you.

    Gareth: at this stage of the game, it only makes sense to strip off automatically-generated quotation marks. To some degree, it is catering to IE, but we have to cater to all browsers we support. Does anyone take issue with catering to Firefox’s (and everyone besides Safari’s) lack of support for text-shadow by not doing white-on-white text with a black shadow? To another degree, it’s also suppressing generated content that maybe shouldn’t be generated, though that’s a huge debate we probably don’t want to have in the comments of a post. The subject of generated content in general is kind of touchy and fuzzy, all at once.

    Jochen: zeroing out all list indentation is intentional, even given the issue you bring up. It’s up to the author to figure out how much they need; besides, so far as I’m aware, most browsers don’t automatically calculate an indentation distance based on the number of list items.

    Martin: that shouldn’t happen at all. Not that I doubt you; just there’s no CSS reason on God’s green Earth why there should be a problem. Do you have a test case you could post, along with information on which IE versions evince the problem? Thanks!

    After a troublesome approach of achieving consistent flexible forms, I”m looking forward to it, Eric! We are about to discuss the reset of form elements at the (german speaking) SELFHTML-Blog right now. In my opinion, it’s not that beneficial to touch them and therefore lose their default browser styles – at least concerning the borders. That’s why I’m really interested in your upcoming thoughts about resetting form elements.

    And now, the one-to-many responses.

    To those who advocated using the universal selector, please see the post “Reset Reasoning” for an explanation of why I specifically don’t want to use the universal selector. Some disagree with me, and that’s no problem. The fifth paragraph in that post, beginning with “This is why so many people zero out their padding and margins on everything by way of the universal selector.”, is where I address that particular point.

    That’s also where I explain why I left out various form elements like input and textarea. I haven’t dug into that topic in detail yet, but I at least give a high-level overview of the reasons as part of that post.

    For those who asked about a comparison of this to Yahoo!’s reset.css, I mentioned in “Reset Styles” that their styles go too far in some areas, and not far enough in others (in my opinion, of course). I started with their styles and made the changes I thought were needed or desirable. So you could consider my work a variant on theirs, or a fork, or a sequel, or maybe just an alternative.

    I hope this helps clear things up a bit.

    I’ve made a test case for my Explorer bug, take a look at http://marja.se/tests/reset.

    As I said in my previous comment, the background image of my #head div disappears when I have background: transparent in my main reset rule, but it appears if I give the element layout. However, if I remove the background declaration from the rule, the image shows up as it should, even without layout.

    I’m running IE6.0.2900..2180 on Windows XP under Parallels in Mac OSX. The bug is also present in my stand alone version of IE5.5 in the same environment.

    Thanks, Martin! I’ll hit it with various versions of IE and see what transpires.

    Not likely, Alfred—at least, not so much slower that it would be perceptible to humans—but I’d like confirmation one way or the other myself. If using reset styles does cause a perceptible slowdown in multiple browsers, that’s obviously something people should know.

    I’m a little confused, so I just have a question. Why would we want CSS to remove quotes from Q tags, when browsers are supposed to insert the quotes and nest them on their own? If we have CSS remove those quotes, then content authors are more likely to insert their own quotes into the document. But, the very idea of inserting quotes into Q tags goes against the (W3C) way of using Q tags.

    “Visual user agents must ensure that the content of the Q element is rendered with delimiting quotation marks. Authors should not put quotation marks at the beginning and end of the content of a Q element.” – W3C

    I know that IE bungles this, but I get the feeling like your solution just encourages improper use of the Q tag, violating the above statement. Would you explain this decision for us? Thanks.

    Good stuff Eric, I remember you talking a little about this at AEA-Boston.
    This is how I deal with my <hr/> tags:

    hr{
    border: 0;
    border-top: 1px solid #555;
    margin: 0;
    height: 1px;

    </style>

    <!–[if IE]>
    <style type="text/css">
    hr{ position:relative; top:-7px;}
    hr + *{ position:relative; top:-14px; }
    </style>
    <![endif]–>

    This doesn’t work in IE6, but I imagine dean edwards’ script can deal with that. It’s still pretty close.

    The Martin background transparency issue, also, affects IE7. Whenever a color value, including transparency, is assigned to the background element within the reset.css, the background image is not recognized within IE [the inherit value aside]. Its gets even more strange — if JavaScript is used to assign a transparency value to background within the reset.css, the issue does not occur within IE — and the JavaScript CSS is only recognized by IE from what I understand. I have no idea what is going on or why.

    zeroing out all list indentation is intentional, even given the issue you bring up. It”s up to the author to figure out how much they need; besides, so far as I”m aware, most browsers don”t automatically calculate an indentation distance based on the number of list items.

    I just tested this with a 10,000-item “ol”-list and no CSS. All three browsers that I tested it in (Firefox2, MSIE6 and MSIE7) failed to calculate a suitable indent. But the problems started at 10,000. Everything up to that was OK.

    But that was with a default font-size! If I up the font-size a bit. The problems start much earlier.

    Adding the reset CSS made things worse, of course.

    But no big deal in real-life, I guess.

    Blah. Head-cold had me in a daze for a few days. Confused cellpadding with cellspacing, and then didn’t bother to check what I was saying anyway. Having just run a check in Win/Ff, Win/IE6 and Win/Opera, I’ve found you don’t need to use cellspacing if you use the border-collapse and border-spacing rules, even in quirks mode, so you can most likely delete that comment.

    I’d personally add empty-cells: show to that sheet, but that’s a personal preference based on how I’ve always figured table cells ought to behave (I always thought it was dumb to have to put a &nbsp; into a cell to make it appear correctly back in the pre-CSS days).

    And if I can rehash an old complaint? Please do something about that preview area. It pins my 2.4 GHz P4 Celeron at 100% for almost a minute while refusing to accept keystrokes in the textarea after a while. Editing my comment in Notepad is really annoying for something that nearly every other comment system in the world pushes to a new page. (Blogger, I think, doesn’t, and it has the same problem. Luckily for me, I never feel the need to comment on Blogger blogs.)

    Jason: IE/Win ignored border-collapse, border-spacing, and empty-cells at last check (see http://www.quirksmode.org/css/tables.html), which is why I put in the comment. If they’re supported in your copy of IE, you must have found the super-secret full CSS support install that everyone else would also like to have.

    Also, I’ll be happy to replace my preview area plugin when someone points me to a better one for WordPress (and it needs to be be a plugin). The one I have now doesn’t cause any slowdowns in my browsers, but then I’m on a Mac. It does cause weirdness in Safari when there are links in the comment, but since I haven’t found a better one yet, I’ve lived with it.

    Those small inconsistencies that don’t validate and produce errors or warnings, such as proprietary properties or the {background-image:transparent} declaration, place them within a separate style sheet titled, nonvalid.css or some other adequately titled style sheet.

    Knowing that any particular code chunk, script, style, whatever will produce an error or warning is important.

    Standards are not so dogmatic that judicious deviation from them is never justified. Knowledge of why the deviation was made, adequate reference and notation of the deviations for future changes that may be necessary and the insurance that any error/warning does not adversely impact rendering of the content are probably more important criteria.

    The background-image declaration, for example, is important to me. It may not be important to others. The Meyer Reset is a starting point. It is intended for adjustment for individual coding style, project dependency, etc. It will aid in creating consistency of rendering between user agents. It will not guarantee that any given design will render exactly the same between user agents particularly in complex designs. Nothing will do that. Close is good enough with design used for Web browser dependent communication.

    Thank you very much.

    Eric: border-spacing is ignored in Win/IE if you don’t use border-collapse. Team the two declarations up and you’re just fine. Ditto for empty-cells. By itself, an empty <td> doesn’t appear; in conjunction with border-collapse: collapse it works just fine. Apparently border-collapse has a little voodoo with it. I’ve put up a demo on my site to show what I’m talking about. In fact, it looks like quirksmode.org is saying the opposite of what you’re saying: cellspacing overrides border-collapse but isn’t required to make it work. I’d say that empty-cells needs to be changed to “incomplete” at least for IE6 (I’d presume IE7 as well, barring a regression).

    As for the “better” preview, I was thinking of what you usually see in web forums: you click a preview button, and you go to a preview page to look at what you typed, and the text-editor is pre-filled for you if you want to make changes. I realize it’s probably a Javascript issue with Ff 2.0.0.3 causing the slowness, but it doesn’t make things less annoying for me.

    There are lots of things to address here:

    1. font-family: inherit; doesn’t work in opera or IE6. font: inherit; works but not in IE.
    2. There are still default styles set for a, b, code, del, ins, i, s, strike, u, textarea (font face), isindex, menu, dir etc.
    Shouldn’t they be addressed too?

    The idea of disabling all visual styles is appealing, especially with deprecated tags so the author can decide how each tag will be displayed or not. Are you purposely missing some deprecated tags? You are fiddling around with the font tag, why?

    Here is my take. and here is a HTML sample.

    A couple of points. I have been using resets similar to this for a while now, and was just about to upgrade mine to the Yahoo reset-min.css when I saw this post.

    I have performed a scary operation and put your version into one of my clients sites and found that it has made things better, though looking at my old code I am unsure as to why – and that is the scary part.

    I am hoping that it is something to do with the ‘inherit’ in my fonts.css (based on tha Yahoo css)

    A note now to Koziołek regarding font-size:62.5%;

    I believe I know why you want to do this. Making the baseline font equal to 10px makes sizing divs which will expand on ctrl+ very simple, however if you really need this, there are some problems…

    Firstly IE – try it, and size a div to 700px, then to 70em – they are not the same width in ie!

    Secondly, I recall a few years ago doing a load of work regarding the Mac/Win font-size issue, then going to my sisters Mac and finding that my work had been mostly a waste of time, and that the font sizes were consistent across the platforms for almost all the browsers I tested. (Maybe someone can explain this to me – has something changed in Mac OSX, or do Safari/Camino take the dpi into account?), but for IE there was definitely an issue.

    I hope the below sorts this out once and for all, though it is unbelievably inelegant.

    An outer-wrap div, enclosing an inner-wrap div in the markup, then:

    /* reset the font sizes to the base font size that we want */
    body {font-size : 100.01%;} /* For Stupid Opera */
    body {font-size : 62.5%;} /* Resets 1em=10px: */
    #outer-wrap {*font-size:101%;} /* For Stupid IE */
    #inner-wrap {font-size:100%;}

    rather unnecessarily (I think) I then put in conditional comments, a stylesheet for Non-IE with:
    body {font-size : 10px;} /* for Konqueror, I hope this doesn’t screw up any other browsers */

    After this I use a stylesheet to set font sizes specifically for elements like p, tables, forms etc, but take good care with these, as you may sometimes find some strange results when tables contain form elements etc.

    I await the barrage of comments pointing out my lack of understanding, but thanks to blogs like these, I am starting to get it… cheers Eric.

    Thanks Eric! I find myself using some form of reset CSS more often these days, mostly due to experimentation with vertical rhythm and trying to “set type” on a computer screen. Your collection of reset styles seems to be more closely aligned to what I use as opposed to the Yahoo! resets. I admit that I too was a little surprised to see the FONT declaration and its’ brethren in there, but I also realize that there are still quite a few CMS’s (and their embedded WYSIWYG editors) that produce bad markup. At least this will give the author some control over those pesky deprecated tags.

    As always, you rock! Thanks again for sharing your insight.

    Maybe Yahoo! can update their reset file based on Eric’s suggestions here. Just started using the Yahoo one by linking directly to it and hope that they will always update it according to the best and most current wisdom.

    Great writeup Eric. I’ve been personally using a revision that rooted from Shaun Inman’s summer/reset CSS presentation a while back. Meanwhile,

    This is why so many people zero out their padding and margins on everything by way of the universal selector. That”s a good start, but it does unfortunately mean that all elements will have their padding and margin zeroed, including form elements like textareas and text inputs.

    What % of browsers have the same setting for those form elements? Is it too big that using the universal selector might be a step backward? Thanks, and I look forward to your reply.

    As Jason mentions, the reason why you still have to use cellspacing=”0″ is due to the fact that border-collapse:seperate; should actually be border-collapse:collapse; This brings all browsers into line and the spacing with IE will disappear.

    I think this might be of great help too: ol {list-style-position: inside;}

    @Tim: Regarding the position:relative for ul, ol, and dl–I would think that’s more of a IE/Win bugfix than a “reset” rule. It helps to know though, and would be great for your IE-filter CSS files.

    Regarding my ol’s list-style-position, I guess this is more of a workaround to deal with situations where your list goes from 1-digit to 2-digits, to 3 and so on. That is, no need to keep changing margin-left as the list grows. Though it makes the ol quite weird looking, it does the job.

    Unless… there’s a better way?

    [...] After getting your markup done it’s time to style your site. The easiest way to avoid compatibility issues later is to reset the styles on all elements. This is done because different browsers use different styles for elements. One might naturally put 10px of padding on a p tag and another might put 10px of margin. This is the root cause for many rendering issues found later. A good reset style sheet was posted recently on Eric Meyer’s site. [...]

    Like heulman said about background. It’s a shorthand property that is not very well supported when you don’t specify all the values (unlike border, for example).

    The first rule could be as heulman suggested, or specify it fully like so:
    background: transparent none repeat scroll left top;
    … and then body { background-color: #fff; }

    I know it’s kinda of topic. Below is a reset rule for the “hr” element:

    hr {
    border: 0;
    height: 1px;
    background: black;
    color: black;
    }

    If you wonder why there is a color attribute it’s because of the way IE family interprets the “hr” element. I came with this idea back in the days, but haven’t used it at all. I usually don’t use “hr” elements, or if I do — I am not concerned with how it looks.

    I hope you find it useful.

    For the scroll bar use this

    This force the vertical scrollbar on firefox (like in IE) and fixes visual movements when changing from small pages to big pages (no scrollbar->scrollbar), for example on centered pages.

    Good stuff, but I’m wondering about the font-size: 100%;
    Assuming we are not to assume anything when it comes to cross-browser AND cross-version stuff, is 100% really a “reset”? This would actually (if I understand it right) set the font-size to the UA-default. Wouldn’t a “true reset” be supposed to make the font-size equal in all browsers? In other words it should be UA independant.

    Apologies for such a basic question, but I’m curious as to why you’ve included “html” in the reset declaration. Everything in the visible page is included within “body”, so why define “html” as well? Is there some inherent padding/margin within the page but outside of “body”, or is there some other reason? This is really puzzling me – if someone could enlighten me I’d be very grateful.

    @sjapp,

    Yes, you should have an id on that div (example: div id=”reset” ) and then just put that id before each selector and separate it with a space (example: #reset div, #reset span, #reset applet, #reset object, #reset iframe, #reset h1, and so on).

    The one thing that is missing from this is

    html {overflow: scroll}

    This forces ff/opera, etc to have scroll bars, even if its not required. It’s important because IE has scrollbars regardless of the content.

    This stop things like layout jumping on ‘center’ based designs.

    Hi

    Thanks for this, I’ve been using variations of it for a while now. I’ve also just bought CSS Sculptor from NetAssist which has increased productivity 100 fold.

    I have one small problem that I just can’t figure out. I use TopStyle Pro 3.12 to edit my style sheets and the “applet” element in both this reset and the code generated by CSS Sculptor causes TopStyle to crash. If I remove ‘applet’ out the code things are fine.

    Is this a TopStyle problem or is there something about ‘applet’ that I need to be aware of.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and assisting in the production of a great tool.

    Eric – encountered something peculiar while using the reset reloaded styles last week. If you have an image and use the align=”left” or align=”right” values to indicate which way text should flow around the image (the case I was looking at had a heading to the right of the image) – IE will ignore them. You can still use float left/right but for older content or people that still like to use the align left/right values it could be an issue. I’ve checked with the IE developer toolbar and by default there’s no assigned vertical-align attribute specified to images in IE by default.

    Just thought I’d let you know.

    [...] There are two main differing behaviors in browsers: Their default rendering of HTML elements, and how they handle CSS. To start with, I recommend you always (or whenever possible) use a CSS Reset. Resetting the CSS takes away one of the differing behaviors between multiple browsers. For example, IE6 and Firefox both give <h2> tags a default margin, however, that margin is slightly different between both browsers. When you eliminate that behavior, and set everything to have no default(browser) styling, you make your job a whole lot easier. Eric Meyer has created a fantastic CSS Reset which you can find here.

    Actually, that’s part of the point, Chris. Having set the weight of that element to be equivalent to its parent (which is most likely going to be weight 400) you can now decide exactly how you want to style strongly emphasized content. Boldface? Italic? Boldface and italic? Make it slightly bigger? Put a highlight background on it? All of the above?

    The same is true for the element em, which will end up with a style of normal instead of italic.

    Excellent point, kL. Except I think none would be better than normal in this case. The two are equivalent for :before and :after, so it really doesn’t matter, I suppose, but since I want no generated content there I feel like I ought to say so instead of relying on an equivalence.

    I am using FCKeditor to allow selected users to add content to various pages. Of course each page that displays the content has a standard heading (logo etc) and footer (copyright, links etc). Also the user content is limited to a certain area of the page (eg centered & width of 600px), there being standard ‘margins’ on the sides.

    What I would like is a method that does something similar the Eric’s but only for the user content.

    Are there any ways to do that?

    font-weight: inherit;
    font-style: inherit;
    font-size: 100%;
    font-family: inherit;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    }

    Rather then..


    * { margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    border: 0;
    outline: 0;
    font-weight: inherit;
    font-style: inherit;
    font-size: 100%;
    font-family: inherit;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    }

    and do you need to have


    font-weight: inherit;
    font-style: inherit;
    font-family: inherit;

    I would use;

    body { font:100%/1.25 arial, helvetica, sans-serif; }

    This way your set the font size to a 100% so you have a standard cross browser starting point for the size of the font if the user increases the browser text

    I’m not sure, but I think I remember reading somewhere that using
    * { /*attributes*/ }
    is slower than using
    /*elements*/ { /*attributes*/ }

    If I find the article again I’ll post it here, but maybe that can clear things up.

    Also, people have stopped using the universal (*) element because it’s not considered “good code” anymore. Even though it uses every element in the language *lol* I think writing out every one is better than using the asterisk.

    That’s just my opinion. Feel free to do whatever you want!

    urghh…. everbody should know how to use these or even if to use these.

    In example: if your customers are using a CMS or Blog-System, they could (unmaintained by CSS) use ul/li or others and there is a good reason then for a default behaviour.

    You forgot a lot of IE optimization in your reset, for example setting images as block-elements to avoid undercutting line-heights…

    just saying that: your body:line-height misses a measure, like ‘P’ or ‘em’

    and no… I disagree, you dont deserve money for it :0)

    Setting default values in a xhtml or css format in order to prepare a website standard for another developer is one of the most stupid thing i ever heard about. I am well informed about the idea and the defaults but i also reset most of them and its really makes things more difficult and it seems to me stupid that standards add non standard settings in the standard world we live in for the new website development….

    What is the usability in that idea! ???

    I still think a global reset is the right thing to do. Remember, this is a file (or inline code) that you can reuse from site to site. That means setting your baselines (to 0) and modifying each site as needed. Some sites might need larger padded form elements and some smaller. This is what I use:

    html {
    height:100%;
    }
    body {
    min-height:100.05%;
    }
    * {
    border:0;
    font-size:100%;
    font-style:normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    margin:0;
    outline:0;
    padding:0;
    }
    table {
    border-collapse:collapse;
    border-spacing:0;
    empty-cells:show;
    }
    ul,ol {
    list-style:none;
    }

    I can then set list bullets, form margins, table borders as needed on each site.

    Though I do like this reset script, there is one little problem with it. You removed the outline property from all elements, which I admit makes the site look better. However, this can cause a real problem for people who navigate the website through the keyboard only (using the tab key mostly). When they press the tab key, they can’t see the “dotted outline” telling them where the focus is on the page! I suppose it might not be a huge problem, but it could cut some of your visitors off from reading your posts. (You can read an article on this here.)

    font-size: 10px;
    font-weight: normal;

    Im sorry but I really don’t understand the point of these reset.css. If you know how the style works in each browser then there is absolutely no need to use this. Its extra fluff and actually has caused me more problems when I have to edit someone elses style sheet. Ive been working with css layouts for years now with no problems with browsers. As long as you know how each property works in each browser you can code in a way that will work on all browsers.

    I have started looking at CSS frameworks and reset style sheets lately, and I have come to a basic conclusion.

    Why reset? Set instead. Simply put, replace your reset style sheet with one that SETs all the basic styles to the defaults you would like to start from instead. You still get a good baseline across browsers by setting all your styles to a standard format. I just don’t see the point of doing something to force me to specifically undo it later. I would much rather start with a style sheet that has a reasonable starting point that overrides the differences between browsers while at the same time making elements appear as I would expect them to everywhere.

    So how about we see the death of the reset style sheet and the birth of frameworks with set style sheets. I think I will work on creating my own set.css in the near future.

    <div class="hr"></div>

    I’ve never EVER had to wonder if it was cross-browser compatible.

    input[type=hidden] {
    visibility: hidden;
    height:0px;
    border:0px;
    margin: 0 0 0 0;

This is the root cause for many rendering issues found later. A good reset style sheet was posted recently on Eric Meyer’s site. [...]

    Hey there!

    Thanks for this. I have found it be very useful. I’m just having one problem with it, and maybe you, or somebody, can help me with it.

    My website has a section to allow admins to manage content on the site. They can format the text anyway they like. This html is then stored in a database, and retrieved when the page is accessed. The problem that I am having is that the resets strip out all of the formatting. Paragraphs appear squashed together, bold text is removed etc etc…

    Is there any way around this? Can I somehow get it to ignore te rules that came before it?

    Regards, and thanks

    Dear all.

    One small amendment I would like to suggest to the origonal CSS code at the top of the screen is to do with how list items our spaced differently between firefox and internet explorer.

    I have designed navigation menus using the list item principle but defining my own bullets. Because my menus contained a good number of links, it ment that the menus were far longer when displayed in IE then they are in FF. The FF variation being what I wish to aschieve.

    After a bit of trail and error I left the code as you have shown above, but added the following CSS line.

    li {display:inline;}

    This instantly stops IE setting its defult spacing requirements for list items but makes no effect in FF.
    The result I was after.

    Hope this helps others.

    It’s actually a good idea to add text-align:left; to the first rule in this rest. The advantage here is that it stops text from inheriting text-align:center when that’s applied to a wrapper div for centered layouts.

    Actually, that’s not such a good idea, Matthew. I did the same thing myself in early iterations of the reset and discovered that doing so will “break inheritance” by blocking its action.

    Suppose you add that to the first rule and then at some point later declare, say, ul {text-align: center;}. All of your list items will be left-aligned due to the effects of your proposed addition.

    Just a thought here but do you think you could put the reset CSS file on a distributed source code site such as Google Code and link to it from your site? That way any sites using the reset will benefit from it being cached by visits to other sites using it, much like what has been suggested for the jQuery framework.

    When I am trying to make a table it sticks to left border and top, even if I set align=’center’, but if I put stuff from Erics file about body into my file, even when it is imported
    body {
    line-height: 1;

    Eric, do you care to clarify the table rule that you have?

    /* tables still need 'cellspacing="0"' in the markup */
    table {
      border-collapse: separate;
      border-spacing: 0;
    }

    Judging from other blogs and comments on this post, a better variation would be:

    table {
      border-collapse: collapse;
      border-spacing: 0;
    }

    You changed the border-collapse property (and I am guessing not by accident) to ‘separate’ in this reloaded sheet. In your original CSS reset stylesheet you did use ‘collapse’.

    Can you elaborate on the reason?

    I realize this is an old post, but your reset sheet is the #1 reset stylesheet on the web. Google still leads us to the original one though. Presumably this one is better and you explained most of the changes very well but I can’t find your reasoning for the ‘separate’ value.

    Thanks very much for posting this and other resources!

    Though I’m going to be sticking with the “Universal Reset” for the time being, the refinements you made with the table, :focus and blockquote elements are great as I invariably end up writing something like that but then have to do battle with the CSS. Nice to get those things cleared off-the-bat.
