I have found those really useful. If you have any more please leave a comment with them. Some thing that I have found personally to help are these. Two things that I have learned the hard way but hopefully it will help you.

The first line in your css should be
*{margin: 0; padding: 0;}
This resets the margin and padding for all elements and normalizes the padding/margins across different browsers.

Encase your page in a wrapper/container div

<div id=”wrapper”>
<!–all code goes inside here–>
</div>

Make this wrapper div a fixed width usually 1024 because most monitors are 1024×768.  These two tips will solve a lot of cross browser and cross resolution issues.
