In Writing Your Program, where do I access the sample html file?

There isn't anything under the "downloads" section like in previous courses. Am I supposed to pause the video and copy it by hand?

This course has very little code that you actually right. There is no file to download unfortunately so yes you will have to write the code by hand. It's worth the practice though.

You do have to copy the code out yourself. I found it easiest to use workspaces that Treehouse provides, seeing as that is what I have been using for all the other courses. I simply opened up a new workspace, sized it to fit alongside the video window and paused the video to copy out the code. However you can use whatever code editor you are comfortable with. It doesn't take long and as already mentioned it's good practice!

You write your own code, and he recommends using TextMate at 00:58.
