Im a total beginner at html, a youtube tutorial was showing the basic stuff to make a website using notepad, having a mac I used textedit and save it as an HTML. I opened it in safari, but instead of having clean script, got this:

<html>
<head>
<title>Upper Lever clothing</title>
</head>

<body>
The best store in the world
</body>

</html>

Am I doing something wrong? IS there a better program to learn HTML on?

In TextEdit, press Command+Shift+T, this should make the formatting bar go away. Save with the extension .html, and then it should work

It looks like you didn't save with an HTML (or HTM) extension. As Unibody said, save it with the right extension and you should be good to go.
