    Default stylesheet for IE7?

    Is there a place where I could find a default style sheet for IE7, if one does exist? I know the W3C has a default for the HTML language, but I would like to know if there is information on how IE7 defaults.

    The reason I ask is that I notice there are basic style differences between IE and FF using the exact same style sheet and I think it might be nice to know all the defaults for IE7 so that I could tackle them when I first create a page, rather than spend hours troubleshooting later.

    Many thanks!

    I think the easier thing to be would be reset all margins and paddings to 0 in your CSS by using the universal selector.
    Code:
    * {
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }

    What about font sizes and weights, etc? In some of my pages, if I allow the font-weight to default, for example, it appears bold in IE7, but it is normal in IE6...

    I think what you are seeing is the cleartype. By default its enabled in IE7. It will cause the text to be little bit thicker but slightly blurry on an lcd. In IE7 go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Scroll down to Multimedia > Uncheck Always use ClearType for HTML > Hit Ok > Restart IE7.

    And tell your users to do that same.

    Was that the issue? On first run of IE7 you have the option to turn this feature off.

    The text appears bold to HIM. Since he's creating the page for USERS how the heck is changing his own cleartype settings going to benefit any one else?

    Yeah, that did it. What is ClearType? I feel extremely ignorant hearing about this for the first time.

    Its probably not but nothing you can really about it either other than change it on your end.

    True. Why can't all the browsers JUST GET ALONG?
