    not displaying HTML files
    in Windows when i created an HTML file, saved it, i opened it and it displayed what i wanted it to. i was working with html on my Mac, saved the HTML file, and opened it in Safari. instead of displaying the Titles, tables, etc. i wrote, it displayed the ACTUAL HTML (<html></html>, that type) and not what the HTML coded for. does anyone know how i can get it to work?

    What app did you use to write that html? Cause if you have written html in rich text mode in textedit, it will show you the actual code (using special characters). Check the source and see (Safari > View > Source)

    I think you have a tagging problem.
    What did you use to write the code?

    Is the document type declared at the head of the html file

    otherwise its an open ended tag that is at fault
