First HTML exercise didn't work

by summitday113 » Sat Jun 30, 2012 2:11 am

I knew it couldn't possibly be so easy! It just doesn't work. I formatted the text document exactly as instructed, but when I opened it in the browser it didn't convert. It was just the text document with all the HTML stuff. Why?

save your file as .html
In notepad
In textedit.

I'm having the same problem.

Code:

<html>
<head>
<title> For example </title>
</head>
<body>
<p> Hello World! </p>
</body>
</html>

It just opens a web page that has that exact stuff in it.

I'm using TextEdit on a mac. I'm saving the file as 'web page' with .html extension.
