Try applying or overriding this stylesheet to an unstyled page:
It's from blueprint [http://www.blueprintcss.org/], but there are other base
stylesheets like YUI [http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/base/]

Styles injected into the head can foul things up, but I think applying a css
reset stylesheet provides a consistent starting point.
