For some reason, all of a sudden if I am working in Illustrator cs3 on my imac, my text type tool does what it wants. Let me explain.
If I am working with some art and have color swatches set up, if I go to select the text tool, automatically when I place the i-beam, the stroke goes to none, and the stroke becomes black.
It is not a big issue to go switch it but this happens whenever I go and use the text tool multiple times in one document.
Is there a setting that I touched that makes it default to no fill and black stroke?
Thanks for any help or advice on this,

You mean the fill goes to none?
I would try deleting preferences. Restart Illustrator while holding command-option-control-shift and it should prompt you to delete the preference file(s)
If that doesn't do it, the issue may lie within your default startup files, which are located at yourusername/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS3/New Document Profiles
Make a copy before you edit any of them. ;-)
Whooot! that was it!!!
I remember going in there a few months ago to set my font to be the first font in my list of fonts so that I did not have to start at the tope again.
Thank so much for your help,
