  • Multiple Options: Users have four ready-to-go options to get started with creating their own styles, including downloading source files, using the Sass template, forking the full source CodePen, or starting with the Style Stage Skeleton Starter CodePen.
  • Guidelines: Users are provided with guidelines on creating their own version of the stylesheet, including restrictions on modifying the HTML.
