Would you clarify your question? I don't understand what you are asking 
here. If you mean "Which stylesheet is used by default?", it would be 
the one in your user account, rather than the system one.

OTH, if you mean "What css does Konqueror use by default?", that would 
be found in $KDEDIR/share/apps/khtml/css/html4.css. Your responses 
suggest to me that what you may be looking for is site-specific 
overrides to the way Konqueror renders pages. I'm not sure that can be 
done in Konqueror. Firefox allows for that, and there are extensions 
for it (Stylish) that make it easy to implement.

Your original question, "How can I change default foreground color used 
by Konqueror to display html\xhtml files?" seems to be answered by 
this. But perhaps what you meant to ask was "How can I change the 
foreground color used by Konqueror to display html/xhtml when the 
page's css does not specify a color?" I don't know of a way to do that 
with Konqueror; it seems to treat its default stylesheets as if 
"!important" were specified for all rules, which is unfortunate, 
because that overrides the styles intended by the author and prevents 
fine-grained control of the display by you.

My suggestion is to use a browser that has more flexibility in 
specifying style rules, such as Firefox.
