    Hi there,
    when I did “hardcore” CSS reset by typing * { margin, padding, border,etc..} I’ve lost the style of input buttons, so I managed to get the style back by sniffing into user-agent default css style.
    I could get back the look of button in webkit-based browsers by typing ” border: 2px outset buttonface; ” (but messy when mousedown).

    Challenge for anyone to get this working in every browser?


    Ya, that’s not the answer I wanted to hear :]
    It’s a challenge.. I just want to know, If it’s even possible (I think there must be a way).

    I was also thinking about default values with !important rule, so the reset can’t affect it. But I don’t know how to evoke them. I would appreciate somethink like: “border: initial !important;” .. no luck yet.
