I was thinking the practice page would just be hello, welcome, edit the page, here's some links to info. I just want people to practice clicking the edit button, making a simple change, trying out wiki syntax perhaps, and hitting save. They can look at history and revert. 


I worry that a CSS property would be confusing — that people might think its a real page. 




I like the idea of it resetting itself periodically. Then we don't need to maintain it. It'll maintain itself. 




Let's not let this idea become too complex, however. We have many other more important things to do.
