This and many other posts are also available as a pretty, well-behaved e-book: On Web Development.

Messing around a bit I wrote a little Chrome extension to display reset style sheets. I just liked the idea of learning when a website is taking a styling detour. The extension’s source code—essentially a tiny style sheet that assumes that the more common resets have not been renamed—is open and available on GitHub.
