Having just received my promo copies of Mastering CSS with Dreamweaver CS3 that I wrote with Stephanie Sullivan, I found it interesting that Eric Meyer and Jonathon Snook were discussing the topic of CSS resets on their blogs today. During the writing of the book, we actually used Eric’s reset in one of our chapters. But, honestly, I have to say that I agree with Jonathon, in that while Stephanie tends to use the reset often, I actually rarely do. Instead, I tend to do the same as Jonathon – I rarely reset anything, preferring to simply write a rule or two to address any inconsistencies between browsers. As Jonathon points out, whether a list has a circle or a square doesn’t really impact the design – and if it does, then a rule can be created to address it. Anyway, that’s my take on things… if anybody actually cares what I think. :-)Â Cheers!

Apparently I confused Greg by putting the reset in the book. ;) I actually don’t personally use a reset either. But I feel, as I said on Eric’s blog, that there are many techniques and people have many styles. You should be aware of everything that’s available and then use what’s appropriate for you.
Thus, the reset is in the book. For many, it’s a good technique. :)
