Ah, yes. * is a good one....

My most recent use of * was somehting like this:

#col * { padding: 0 1em; }
#col * * { padding: 0; }

I used to use the universal selector to reset all paddings/margins, but 
I have now gone with the YUI way of doing things.[1]

Many thanks for your input Toby, it is much appreciated. :)

Have a great day.
