Typeset.css - A No-Nonsense CSS Typography Reset For Styling User-Generated Content


Typeset.css is a no-nonsense CSS typography reset for styling user-generated content like blog posts, comments, and forum content. 

Typeset.css is a CSS file (typeset.css) that includes all the styles you need to ensure content on your site is styled. Styles are only applied to areas that have a parent element with the class typeset, so it can be target content-specific markup.

Common user-generated content includes anchors, bold and italic text.  Also common phrase tags are <code>, strong and emphasis (much like bold and italic).

Typeset.css is not a CSS framework for styling the layout and design of your website - just specific blocks of content (e.g., blog posts, comments, forum content) that includes paragraphs, lists, code snippets, and so on.

When to use this

Any time you have stripped a browser’s default styles or haven’t specified styles for content elements, use Typeset.css. It’s great for:

  • Blog posts
  • Articles
  • Comments
  • Helper text in web apps
  • Any other content blocks on a page

Never again add content to your web page just to find that you don’t have a consistent style for it.  Typeset was originally created for user-generated content on UserVoice feedback forums (here’s an example UserVoice forum), and then expanded to work with content generated by UserVoice-powered knowledge base articles (example article). Because users create these articles using a WYSIWYG editor with HTML-editing capabilities, we needed to make sure we had a base set of styles for any content-related markup.
