Web designers and web designers around the world are struggling with a cross-browser compatibility. To make web development process easier, experts have created something called CSS Reset. CSS reset is implemented in order to normalize most of the margin and padding-related differences across different browsers. This is a starting point for each HTML/CSS job.

An example bellow is crated based on Eric Meyer’s CSS reset (meyerweb.com) and it is recommended by Royal Deer Design.

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, b, u, i, center, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li, fieldset, form, label, legend, table, caption, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td
margin: 0;
