Can you point me to any documents or websites that give a generally agreed upon guideline on how to build webpages?

What I'm talking about is a a kinda of step by step general guide on how to lay the foundations for building webpages, based on current browsers.
For instance, I've noticed a lot of css documents start with defining basic elements, such as giving zero padding and margin to the body and then adding it to later elements as needed. Is there a webpage or site out there that lists these things so as I'm building a site I can know to avoid x 'cause it creates huge headaches in IE or to define your basic text size like this or your elements like that?
I realize there's a lot of ways to build webpages, and that those ways may differ based on the project, but I'm looking for a general guideline on how to go about this.
I'm NOT looking for guidelines on how to build webpages, but rather guides on how build good, semantic pages by doing x and y and avoiding z, except when there's w etc, etc.
