    I have recently started taking an online course on HTML. I am trying to figure out how to make a website from scratch so to speak.

    I've pretty much done what the book says as far as entering my HTML into Notepad but that is as far as I have been able to get. Granted I am not by any means thru with the HTML course yet but I have finished the first few stages where the course states that I should be able to make a web page. What do I do next?

    You're already done. Just save it as something.html instead of something.txt and then open it in Firefox / Internet Explorer.

    When saving it as html in notepad, make sure you put quotes around it. For example, "something.html". Otherwise, notepad will save it as something.html.txt which would still be a text file.

    Instead of quotes, just set "Save as type: All files.

    Save it as .txt, copy the file and rename the copy as .html - that way you have a copy of your txt file.

    Why does not try some HTML pads like Sausage Software's HotDog Professional... it very much helpful to learn HTML, DHTML, XML also can lots of other free HTML writing software available.. just try a google search.

    1. When you save it, click Save As, -> Select it from .txt to "All Files" And name it index.html or something
    2. You may use Dreamweaver type your Code there and press f12
    3. Dreamweaver is far too expensive if you're just starting out, Notepad is great, I still use it, and I'm okay with HTML/CSS. :)

    Hi,

    I have read all these Posts and I cannot get to save my Notepad File as anything else as when I try and "save as" it comes up as either Text or dropdown as 'all files" and there is no way can type anything else in there!
    The Boxes are sort of Greyed out leaving it impossible to change anything??
    I just want to be able to open the HTML Text in a Browser either IE OR Mozilla or the new Edge Browser

    Any help here really appreciated.
    Thanks
