Recipe to keep our hair (browser-independent coding)

Hi,
I'm going to build a couple of web pages for demo purpose.
What do I need to know/do in order to make the pages behave correctly on every popular browser?
I'm thinking about using a CSS framework and jQuery, should I care about somethings else?
Candidates are 52 Framework and inuitcss.
Thanks.

jQuery will go a long way to helping you keep your hair. I discovered it too late.

For static CSS, a good reference that points out the browser differences is called for. (For CSS set dynamically through jQuery, it handles most of the differences.)

Do you encourage to use a CSS framework in general (I'm not CSS junkie)?

I've never used one unless you count the jQuery UI theme-generated CSS.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
