I'd like to suggest (or, if it already exists, know how to find) a feature.

There are certain pieces of code that I always add to each "section" file (usually CSS-related). Is there a way that Sigil could utilize a user-defined xhtml file automatically when creating a new "Section"?

For example, right now, any new "section" added to a EPUB book contains this code:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <title></title>
</head>

<body>
  <p>&nbsp;</p>
</body>
</html>
I would find it helpful if I could, somehow, tell Sigil to create every new "section" with:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <title></title>
  <link href="../Styles/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
  <p class="ChapterTitle"> Insert Chapter Title</p>

</body>
</html>
Obviously, this is a very minor change to the code, but thee may be people that have significantly greater amounts of changes they like to make to their books.

Is this possible?
Use the Clipboard tool to save (and later past your custom boilerplate(s))
