Minimalist CSS

Boilerplate

This CSS code makes really beautiful text-centric websites that are responsive and look nice with only like 54 bytes or something? I use this as a basis all the time for making nice looking pages.

main {
  max-width: 38rem;
  padding: 2rem;
  margin: auto;
}

A tiny bit more space yields a nice result, too[3]:

html {
  max-width: 70ch;
  padding: 3em 1em;
  margin: auto;
  line-height: 1.75;
  font-size: 1.25em;
}
