I am a Linux user, but will be a mac user in 2 days.

You need to be in "root" to save the file. I have never come across this problem before.

I would contact Adobe, I don't think you can go into root with the Mac.

right click on the html file in finder and click on get info and under ownership and permissions make sure it says you can read & write. other than that, i can't help you.

and mac's don't give you access to root privileges but you can access them if necessary, which it shouldn't be to edit an .html file.

The file may also be "locked". Do the same right-click get info thing and somewhere in the middle there will be a check box "Locked". Make sure it is unchecked
