Finding out "internal style sheet" of a browser?

AIUI, there are no global style defaults for HTML tags, i e the W3C
does not enforce that e g an <H1> should have a specific type-face,
size, and so on, but rather this is decided by the browser. Is there
any way of finding out what the default style settings of a given
browser is?

Well, that rather depends on the browser. Some (and I'd
bet that MSIE was one of them) may not even implement
default visual appearance as CSS at all.

Mozilla based browsers (such as Firefox) have the DOM
inspector. One of the features of this is that it shows
you what styles apply to a given element - and where
they come from. I'm pretty sure that it does show the
styles built into the browser in this view.

In Gecko browsers (Firefox, Mozilla, etc.), try the URIs
<resource://gre/res/html.css> and <resource://gre/res/quirk.css>.

That DOM inspector is wonderful. I haven't used a Mozilla based browser
for years. I downloaded Firefox to try on broken web pages, but I had
no idea it had such a neat tool as the DOM inspector. That should
really help me rewrite some web pages.

Are there a whole bunch of other nice HTML tools out there? About a
month ago I started looking for an HTML editor on a Macintosh, and
downloaded about 30 of them. So far I haven't really particularly liked
any of the ones I've tried. I've mostly reverted to using the free
TextEdit (because I always have it open), or the also free TextWrangler,
which does do a certain amount of color coding but doesn't really have
HTML support.

Sure is. :)

Must have the Web Developer extension to go along with the DOM inspector.

On Windows there are a few more (like forms.css) in the program folder in the "res" directory, I couldn't find something like that in Linux.

There are also some example files which can be used to override the default files in the users profile (this is the same in Linux).

Opera has them in the program folder in the styles directory (on Windows, I don't have it installed in Linux).

But generally speaking, look for *.css files on your disk (and exclude the Temporary Internet Files folder (nice scrabble word?).

I have a large form that is generated dynamically in a jsp using xml / xslt. So, to break up this form into several "tabbed" sections, I break up the form using <div> tags.
