    I've got a question. For a new project I've started with a basic YUI3 reset (http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/3/). I use the reset, base and font css files so everything works like a charm across browsers. And while it seemed to work perfectly, the RadEditor doesn't seem to like it very much.

    In the attached screendump (I've erased text and labels, so don't worry it's not THAT messed up) on it you'll see 4 browser windows.
    Internet Explorer totally lost it, Firefox somehow stretches it almost screen high, same with Safari but Chrome seems to do just fine.

    I'm not a front end engineer, so I'm doing nothing fancy, this is just the mock-up before the sauce.
    There are 4 stylesheets referenced: YUI3 reset, YUI3 base, YUI3 fonts and 960grid.css and while this combination seems to work perfectly for RadMenu, formDecorator and some of the basic UI elements, the editor really really doesn't seem to like it.

    Anyone got a good idea how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Jochem,

    The problem definitely comes form the external CSS files that you have added. I have browsed their rules and could see, that they applied global styles to almost every HTML element. We do not recommend to applying Global CSS styles when you are using third party controls as Telerik RadControls. I have tried to reproduce the problem, that you mentioned but with no success.

    Please, find attached editorexternal-cssrbug.zip with my project. Could you provide us a live url or working project where the problem from your screen shot exists, so we would be able to investigate it further?

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
