Most of you know that by this time of day (7pm as I write this) I have the attention span of a gerbil on crack. That should add some weight to the recommendation I'm about to make. I just watched (most of) a 42 minute presentation on CSS that is geared toward jumpstarting the viewer on using the YUI tookit.
The presentation is by the author of the CSS files themselves, and manages to include some fantastic background and detail about exactly how different browsers calculate fonts widths and scaling. By talking about why the toolkit does some things, he's giving you a fantastic insight into some of what makes CSS so painful to use in some cases.
Here's a link to the page with the great video presentation.
The Yahoo! YUI toolkit is free, extremely well documented, well supported, and those parts of it I've explored so far seem robust and easy to use. I know a great deal of my html development work is likely to start with a link to the reset, font, and base, css files.
