    Essentials that should be in every css file
    Essential css declarations you can use for your main css file. This sets styles across the board without needing to code it into individual html tags. Modify as needed. Enjoy.

    HTML Code:
    /* Quick hex color reference */
    /* palette
    ?????? - color 1
    ?????? - color 2
    ?????? - color 3
    /* Link style */
    a {
    color: blue;
    text-decoration: underline;
    /* Body style. Gets rid of the default page margin. */
    body {
    margin: 0px;
    /* Set the font used in DIVs */
    div {
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: Helvetica;
    /* Forms have a margin by default that can push your design out undesirably. This gets rid of it. */
    form {
    margin: 0px;
    /* Set the font used in form fields */
    input {
    margin: 0px;
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: Helvetica;
    /* Select style */
    select {
    margin: 0px;
    border: 0px;
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: Helvetica;
    /* Gets rid of default cell spacing */
    table {
    border-spacing: 0px;
    /* Set the font and removes default padding used in all TDs which usually is most of the site */
    td {
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: Helvetica; 
    padding: 0px;
    /* Set the font and style for textareas */
    textarea { 
    margin: 0px;
    border: 0px;
    background-color: #FFFFFF; 
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: Helvetica;
    width: 100%;
    /* List style */
    ul { 
    margin: 0px;
    text-indent: 0px;
    /* List bullet style */
    li {
    list-style-type: square;
    text-indent: 0px;

    /*commonly used attribs*/
    *{padding: 0; margin: 0;}
    .top15{margin-top: 15px;}
    .topN5{margin-top: -5px;}
    .topN10{margin-top: -10px;}
    .topN15{margin-top: -15px;}
    .left5{margin-left: 5px;}
    .left10{margin-left: 10px;}
    .left15{margin-left: 15px;}
    .leftN5{margin-left: -5px;}
    .leftN10{margin-left: -10px;}
    .leftN15{margin-left: -15px}
    .bot5{margin-bottom: 5px;}
    .bot10{margin-bottom: 10px;}
    .bot15{margin-bottom: 15px;}
    .lr10{margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px;}
    .wide{width: auto;}
    display: block;
    text-align: center;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    .right {float: right;}
    .left {float: left;}
    .clear {clear: both;}
    .clearL{clear: left;}
    .clearR{clear: right;}
    .noList{list-style-type: none;}
    a img{outline: none; border: none;}

    I include these in all my projects.
    Makes small things extremely easy.

    need something centered? add class="center"

    need something pushed 15pixels further to the right add "left15"
    need something pushed 15 pixels to the left add "leftN15" N for negative
