first of all, you cannot access .env with html/css/js so there i no point in trying to make a ,env in the first place. In regards to where the .env is now, check out https://docs.replit.com/repls/secrets-environment-variables

According to this

Note that you cannot set environment variables for repls that have only a frontend, e.g. HTML repls.
So you won't be able to use .env files or variable in a HTML repl.
