If you want a plain website without all of this Jekyll/Markdown business, you just need to fill the repository with plain html and css and avoid directory names that start with underscores.

If you want some directories with underscores, just include a file named .nojekyll. You might just include that anyway. See the source for the rqtl.github.io site.

I recommend using Jekyll and Markdown, though. Markdown is just so much nicer than html, to write and maintain.
