    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?

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

<div>Example code</div>

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.
