Here is the current reset.css file I use to start a project.

Do not forget to remove thing you are sure you will never use. It is just a template for reset, but if you are sure you will never use things like <code>, <cite>, <dfn>, <video>… get rid of them!

Do not overload your css with unused definitions. Keep it simple.

And of course, if you think something missing or is wrong, write a comment.
