Pure HTML/CSS Setup?

I want to make a super basic website using only HTML and CSS. The reason is because I have no real need to do any animations, communicate with a backend, etc for this site. Also, there will be no areas I need to collect user input.

It seems to be rare to just write up static pages from scratch like this and I realized that doing this is a bit different from traditional coding that I am used to.

For example, if I write an article like this one on the site, since my Visual Studio Code does not have word wrap on, the content is kind hard to manage when writing... A paragraph will go way off of the page unless I keep going down every 79 chars and etc... I'm not really used to hardcoding this much text into a "code file."

Does anyone have a preferred setup or tips for working with just HTML and CSS and hardcoding the content into the static page itself?

I suppose I could just turn wordwrap on my editor for this, but was wondering if there was a better way.
