Browsers use a set of default CSS rules for HTML elements called the user agent stylesheet. The specifics of these rules can vary between browsers, but some common examples include:

  • Most elements have a margin and/or padding of 0 by default.
  • Some elements, such as the body and heading elements, may have default font sizes, colors, and/or styles applied to them.
  • Links and visited links may have default colors applied to them.
  • Lists and table elements may have default styles and/or spacing applied to them.

These default styles are intended to provide a baseline look and feel for web pages, but web developers can override them with their own custom CSS rules.
