    Browsers are all different, and the best way to get around those differences is to use a different style sheet for the different browsers.

    No, no, no! Browser sniffing is not the way to go.

    Design a site that conforms to web standards and you're most of the way there. Besides incompatibilities in older browsers, most current browsers will display a page the same way.

    If you absolutely have to, you can hide certain CSS rules from browsers within the file itself.

    Make sure to validate your HTML and CSS.
