For those that don't know, a default reset stylesheet is a .css file that you use in your HTML documents. The file has CSS rules that effectively neutralize a browser's default rendering of HTML elements and positioning. It sets all margins and padding to 0 and removes text decoration, size, and weight from HTML tags that normally have these by default, like the header tags (h1 - h6), em, and strong.

To use a reset stylesheet, you link it in your header like any other stylesheet. Then, when you're writing your own CSS, you can choose exactly how each element is to look. You can turn the bold text back on for the headers, and set the exact amount of padding you want, for example. Set your font faces and spacing however you like. The idea behind this extra work is that when a browser is reset to this zeroed-out state, you can specify exactly what you want your elements to look like, and practically all browsers will have an easier time rendering your design as you intended it rather than how the browser's defaults want to display it. The reset stylesheet removes the browser's defaults, so you don't have to worry about them.
