Creating HTML templates

HTML templates let you generate merged documents using the same standard HTML commands found in web pages. With an HTML template and a set of data you provide, you can take the following HTML:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
  <html lang="en">
<head>
  test
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title></title>
  <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com">

  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Montserrat:wght@300;400;600;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
