Default Invalid .html-file while using TextEditor (Mac)


I'm having trouble uploading source code, which I've written in TextEditor for Mac OS X. In the first chapter of Jon Duckett, I followed the advice to save the file in quotes (page 19), because TextEditor saves with the extension rtf if saved without quotes.
When uploading this file, the browser displays the source code instead of the body contents.
When checking my html code, the result is correct when I copy the code into an exercise as below :


Which program should I rather use in order to be able to upload my html as it should be?

Thanks to anyone who can help me

What is the extension of the file on the server when you go to view it?

Where will you be in 100 years?
Try new FreshView 0.2!
The two rules: 1) I am always wrong. 2) If I'm right, refer to rule number 1.

On the mac side I am a big fan of BBEdit.

I also noticed in TextEditor when you go to save there is a show extension checkbox at the bottom you should be able to see the extension and just replace the rtf extension.

Default Plain Text

The problem you're having is that by default, TextEdit saves your documents in Rich Text Format. To save with a different extension, you need to make your text plain text. Press shift command (the one with with the Apple logo or clover leaf) and t. Or, go to "Format" in the menu bar and click on "Make Plain Text".

Hope this helps!

While we're on the topic, it's important to know exactly what extension your files are receiving and Windows does not let you see them by default. Go to Folder Options and locate a list of checkboxes inside a ListView. One of the checkboxes is something like "Hide extensions for known file types". Uncheck it.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
