Exporting

Clicking OK will create a complete HTML File (if you chose Styled HTMLl, the HTML will contain a link to a css file).
Clicking Copy will, well, copy the code. The same applies as above if you chose Styled HTML.

Congratz! You’ve just created this webpage. Okay, at least its content.

I’ve added the following CSS in order to center the content. This CSS is located in a main.css file.:

.container {
                display: flex;
                justify-content: center;
                align-items: center;
            }
            

Which means that my boilerplate code looks something like this:

<!DOCTYPE  html>
            <html  lang="en">
                <head>
                    <meta  charset="UTF-8">
                    <meta  name="viewport"  content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
                    <meta  http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible"  content="ie=edge">
                    <title>How to make this page</title>
                    <link  rel="stylesheet"  href="/css/main.css">
                    <link  rel="stylesheet"  href="https://stackedit.io/style.css"  />
                </head>
                <body>
                    <div  class="container">
                        <div  class="inner-container">
                            <div class="stackedit__html">
                                <h1  id="how-to-make-this-page">How to make this page</h1>
                                <!-- other content -->
                            </div>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                </body>
            </html>
