    Very handy! I’ve been meaning to do this myself for along time, and you saved me the effort. Just one button click!

    I don’t like that CSS reset. There are much better ones out there.

    • Totally cool, valid opinion. I’d just like to say I’ve used that baby on just about every site I’ve ever built in my life and still think it rocks =)

  3. It’s not meant to be actually used in production — like its name says, it’s for test pages. I know I sure make a whole bunch of those at the end of the week. Thanks.

    I have no idea what this does
    I copy & paste it into html file
    uploaded it to my server and
    run it – nothing came out
    can you let me know what to expect?

Posting Code

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
    ``` 
    <div>
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
    </div>
    ```
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
