For some reason, Chrome on my computer's been adding some weird user agent stylesheets to all my sites, leading to some weird formatting (for example, header > h1 doesn't have any letter spacing). You can see some of the user agent stylesheets being applied here:

I have confirmed that this problem is only on my computer, and no other computers have problems viewing these sites. I don't have any extensions installed.

How do I disable/remove these stylesheets?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Have you tried a CSS reset stylesheet? – Blender Sep 8 '11 at 16:08
Yup, the website stylesheet includes a reset stylesheet. – Donniel Thomas Sep 8 '11 at 16:20
Chrome provides a user styles style sheet, have you placed anything in there? There are also plugins which do the same thing, are you running the Stylish extension from ? – meagar Sep 8 '11 at 16:53
Where is letter-spacing in your screenshot? The user agent CSS I can see in your screenshot is all normal and as it should be. Can you demonstrate with screenshots and/or a jsFiddle demo what you're talking about? What version of Chrome? – thirtydot Sep 8 '11 at 16:55
@meagar, no, I haven't added anything to the user styles sheet (AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets). I checked it, and it seems to be empty. – Donniel Thomas Sep 8 '11 at 17:14

Looking at your screenshot:

The problem is not letter-spacing (as in, the CSS property). It has nothing at all to do with CSS.

That font on your computer is screwed up, you need to find a new version of it.
