It is not really the performance “hit” that I object to (modern browsers can handle the
universal selector perfectly fine, even in deeply nested trees – still use in moderation…), it
is the “inherit” value.

(and I never have had the need to use such a construct myself… my aversion to so-called
‘reset’ css thingies is well-known on this list)

How did Peter Gabriel creep into the conversation?
