I made the switch from Windows to a Mac a few days ago with the purchase of my Macbook. I absolutely love OS X so far; its sooo easy to use/learn and it is a great improvement on Windows.

I am however having one problem that I am hoping you guys could help me out with...

So I am trying to use Text Edit for Mac OS X to create a webpage. I saved a little test bit of code as test.html and tried to open it up in safari/firefox however it is showing the actual code. Just in case you are wondering here is the code:

Code:
<html>
<body>

Welcome to my Web page 

</body>
</html>

It works fine for me.
Just be sure to uncheck the "if no extension is provided..." box when saving it and be sure to save it with the .html extension.

Personally, I'd just use SubEthaEdit (www.codingmonkeys.de): It has a live webpage preview, has correct syntax markup and is really nice and fast.

It is also free for non-commercial use.
