Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just want some basic, clean-looking CSS styles to apply to a site of mine that's a web application with lots of forms and tables.

Anyone have a theme or a set of CSS or a site I can look at to find examples? Also would like some decent printable stylesheets.

You should search for CSS cheatsheets, if you want to print.

If you want to style tables, Google "Fancy CSS tables" and youll get something like this posts:

lutrov (DOT) com/fancy-html-tables-with-css

They both have your answer.

Hope it helps.

Designer love.

It all depends how is structured your html, to apply the right CSS style, the right colors and effect. Try to look here for some visual examples on this article and here there is the source file with the css and html

About printing consider that backgrounds are not printed (colored backgrounds and image backgrounds) you should use the media print. An interesting articles on how to setup your CSS Print to optimise the design of your website

If you need more specific technical help, look over stackoverflow.com for coding help, if instead you need a suggestions on colors or composition come back here, but at least post an image :)

backgrounds can be printed, but it's usually better to take people to a print page so they know what they're going to get. –  zzzzBov Jan 14 '11 at 21:59
    
Yes they can if you activate on your software to do it. Only that by standard is not activated and it is not printed. Only power use do that, no common users. And you have to consider the waste of colors in printing a background (worst case scenario in black) –  Littlemad Jan 18 '11 at 11:22
