How to save as HTML in notepad
I learned online HTML two years ago and I now forget about the basic thing.
OK, I wrote an Contact Us email sending form in HTML. I used Notepad in Windows XP Professional. When I wanted to save as, there are some options in SAVE AS page that confused me:
1) File Name: Can I end with .tpl or has to be .htm (because pages in my server file manager finished that way. Example: contact.tpl
2) Save as Type: TextDocuments (*.txt) or All Filles
3) Encoding: ANSI ; Unicode; Unicode Big Endian or UTF-8
Could someone please help me with this.
Save As|All Files|yourfile.htm (or whatever)
you may not have file extensions turned on as well so you may be naming them something.htm.txt
to turn on file extensions
goto my computer
uncheck "hide extensions for known filetypes"
In the save dialog, I believe you also need to enter your filename inside of quotes, otherwise Notepad will append a ".txt" to the end.
Not if you set it to "All Files"

Thanks for all your inputs. What about the third box ENCODING? This box is at the bottom of the Save As pop-up. there are four options in its drop down. Which one is the good one? Thanks,
