To Reset or to Normalize, That is the Question.





Normalize CSS Reset Stylesheet Tutorial

As things continue to develop at break-neck speed in the online world, it can be tough to keep up with it all and you may end up using something just because you are already aware of it. The goal of a CSS Reset Stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, etc. Some basic styling is perfectly fine to leave in place, and you can actually save yourself some time and energy by doing so.

Allowing certain elements like the headers, ordered lists, block quotes, forms and many other simple things to be left alone will save you the effort of recreating them later on. Normalize.css does this for you! Many times these elements will not have any effect on your work, and if this is the case for the majority of your projects than this reset may be for you!

All you need to do to get going is download the normalize.css reset stylesheet, save it into your project folder and away you go! You will see the impact it has once you refresh your page and if there are elements that are left that interfere with your presentation you can always replace the stylesheet with another reset and just rebuild what you need to.
