The previous font-size and line-height were fairly arbitrary values taken from the much earlier use of YUI font defaults. Remove them in favour of developers specifying their own values based on the typographic requirements of their design.

Almost all layout bugs that exist in IE8 also exist in 6 & 7, almost all layout bugs in 7 exist in 6. With class names that target versions specifically I end up repeating my selectors for IE6, 7 & 8. This pattern of selectors avoids that. Developers should be more familiar with this behaviour, as this is how it works with the underscore & star hacks. If a style needs to be applied to IE8 specifically, it could be set on .ltie9 then overridden in .ltie8 - this isn't pretty, but I've never had to target a specific IE in practice, so I'm going on the assumption that it's an edge-case.

Applying *overflow:visible to button/input causes text inputs to grow to fit their content, even if an explicit, fixed width is applied. It was originally included to remove excess inner spacing on buttons and submit/reset/button-type inputs in IE6/7. Fixing this bug in IE6 requires dropping the fix entirely because there is no way to avoid it being applied to text inputs. If there is a need to fix this excess spacing bug in IE6, then it should be done using a class that is applied to the necessary elements. For IE7, the excess spacing fix can be moved into the ruleset that targets button and submit/reset/button-type inputs. This prevents text inputs from growing.
